Friend, remember this today when those voices of accusation attack your mind and regrets from the past weigh heavily upon your heart: despite Paul’s past, Jesus extended grace, faith, and love to him, and He does the same for you. What matters most to God is not who we were formerly, but who we are now that we are His. LIVE in the freedom of His grace. Allow His waves of faith and love to wash over your heart and renew your mind through His Word.
Thank you for extending your grace, faith, and love to me. Like Paul, I don’t like who I was before you came into my life. Help me to see that the old me is gone, and you have given me a new life and a new future (2 Cor. 5:17)! Amen.
