SEPTEMBER 17th…START NOW!! LIVE IN THE NEW!! There are a lot of people who struggle with their yesterdays. They live miserable lives today because of things that happened in the past. They allow the things they can’t forget to destroy the happiness God intends for them today. Let me encourage you to leave what God has already forgiven you of in the past and move forward into the new life God has for you. There is a phrase I read somewhere that said, Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, but today is your gift from God. We need to live our life in the now, in the ALL NEW life God wants you to enjoy. (Revelation 21:5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”) A new life in Christ means that God has forgiven you of all your sins and wiped the slate clean. God has taken up residence in your heart and desires to create for you a bright future that can begin today. Whether you are struggling with past sins, past addictions, past failures, past lies, et cetera, determine this morning to begin living the ALL NEW life God wants you to enjoy. Choose the direction God has for your life, determine to be what God wants you to be, and receive into your life the things God wants you to have. There is a bright future ahead for you, but you have to purposely choose to leave the clouded past behind and walk in newness of life. Pastor Don
