Do you ever feel like you can’t escape your mistakes? Does it ever feel like these mistakes define who you are and where you’re going? We all mess up and sometimes it’s really difficult to understand how God could ever love or forgive us. But He does.
In 2 Corinthians 5:17, Paul talks about how when we accept Jesus, we are made new. God sees us as new, beautiful creations washed clean by Jesus. We’ll continue to slip up, but we have Jesus to renew us and help us. Your past mistakes don’t define you; Jesus does.
