God forgive you so, Let it go!

Don’t look back! As Christians we have a significant advantage over the world. We have a past that is forgiven by God and buried with Christ. We have a present that is useful to God and effective in ministry. And we have a future that is bright with promise. We are to look forward and press on, not look backward and mourn the loss of a less-than-perfect past.

“I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, who became my son while I was in chains. Formerly he was useless to you, but now he has become useful both to you and to me. I am sending him – who is my very heart – back to you. Perhaps the reason he was separated from you for a little while was that you might have him back for good- no longer as a slave, but better than a slave, as a dear brother. He is very dear to me but even dearer to you, both as a man and as a brother in the Lord.” (Philemon 1:11-12, 15-16)

Onesimus sinned greatly, and was formerly “useless,” but after becoming a Christian, he was useful. He was encouraged to not look back into his time of uselessness, but to rejoice that he had been forgiven and that God now wanted to use him. It’s no different for us. As God continues to make us new creations in Him, He also wants to use our lives to bring glory and honor to Himself.

What a blessing this is!
