"He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By His wounds you are healed." -1 Peter 2:24

Happy Resurrection Sunday! Jesus died on the cross for you and as you so that you could live a life of total and complete victory. HE took the penalty for your sins so that you wouldn't have to. Rejoice today that you don't have to live in condemnation of what you've done in the past, because through Jesus you have an amazing future! He came so that we would have life more abundantly (John 10:10). Don't allow the enemy to guilt you into not receiving God's best for your life - "For the law was given through Moses, but God's unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ (John 1:17)." Your past does not determine your future. So many people know this is true of salvation, but when it comes to further blessings from the Lord, they allow condemnation to hold them back from receiving them. God doesn't withhold any good thing from us if we love and obey Him (Psalm 84:11). So if you've made Jesus the Lord of your life, forget about the sins of your past - God has already separated them from you as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). Shake off that shame and decide that from here on out you'll walk along the path of the righteous, which shines brighter and brighter (Proverbs 4:18).
