We all have a past of problems, sin, mistakes and struggles. The question is, what do you do about your past? Everyone, it seems, has an easy answer: “Forget about your past, there’s nothing you can do about it, anyway.” “Your past is past, let it go.” “The past has nothing to do with the present.”

You aren’t saved by the faith you muster up. You are saved because of the faith God gave you. In other words, the faith you have is supernatural and a gift you bring to Jesus.

We forget how good the good news really is….and become the very thing Jesus came to prevent. Maybe we believe that we could not be that bad or that God’s grace could not be that good. Maybe it’s just that a religion of rules and righteousness is attractive because, frankly, we want to do it ourselves and get the credit for it. It could be that pride and self-righteousness are so much a part of us that we’re attracted to that which affirms it.

The message of the gospel of Jesus Christ is one of great joy and great freedom. If Jesus radically changed things (and he did), why is it so hard to see a change? We can be dying inside. We can feel so guilty. We can sin so badly that we feel dirty all the time. We can be holding on “by our fingernails.” We can be bleeding from the wounds of life and from the wounds of other people. Yet when someone asks how we’re doing, what do we say? “Fine.” The honest fact is that we’re not fine.
