You've Been Forgiven, So Live Like It!

"I will...remember their sins no more." Hebrews 8: 12 NIV

This mornings blog and meditation deals with carrying the baggage of the past into your present and your future. Far too often we miss the true meaning of repentance. It is not only to ask for forgiveness. It also means to turn around and go into another direction. When God has forgiven you for a past indiscretion, He wants you to turn yourself around and walk in the opposite direction from your sin. Too often we ask for forgiveness but we fail to turn from the wickedness of our ways. As a result the baggage of the past is carried into the present and future because we really have not let some habit, practice, or situation go. If you want your sins to be thrown into the "sea of forgetfulness,' then you must thrown the habit, practice or situation into the sea as well. Jesus, after he has forgiven someone, then says, "go and sin no more."
