Holding Back!

Death came through Adam, but life came through Christ. Through the disobedience of one man, many were made sinners, but through the obedience of The one man, many will be made righteous Romans 5.

Notice that the Bible uses past tense when it says ‘many were made sinners,’ meaning this is something that happened sometime back, we were all made sinners through Adam. The Bible then uses present continuous tense when it says ‘many will be made righteous.’  Our God is a God of order and a God who plans into each and every detail. To make sure that our sins, are mentioned in past tense, and our forgiveness is mentioned in present continuous tense, meaning it’s an ongoing process, it doesn’t stop! Every single day many are being made righteous through Jesus Christ, many are being forgiven.

Do not feel condemned by your sins, do not feel persecuted by things that you did in the past, don’t let the past rule your future. Isaiah 43:18 says “Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past.” Some of us are so much bugged by our past to the point that they don’t move on. You might have done the most dispeakable things on the face of mankind, but whenever you ask God for forgiveness, He is Gracious and does it instantly. He is not like man to keep reminding you of what you did, His mercies are new every single morning. However, we keep beating up ourselves with guilt of what we did in the past. We have allowed the devil to manipulate us every single day! Why are we allowing him, yet Jesus tells us “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me” John14:1

Fear is a tool of the enemy, do not let him use it on you. Trust God, and believe in what His Word says over your life. Live a life free of condemnation, live a life pleasing to God Almighty! Behold our God is doing a new thing, and it shall spring forth! Do you not perceive it? He is making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland! Receive the Word of God and let it produce fruit!
