Why do we hold on to the sins of the past. Why do we keep bringing condemnation on our self if Jesus forgave us. A few scriptures to help.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth us from ALL sin.” – 1 John 1:7
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to Cleanse us from All unrighteousness.” – 1John 1:9
Here it says that the Blood of Jesus cleanse us from all sin, and that if we confess our sins He will forgive us and Cleanse us from All unrighteousness. Notice the words Cleanse and All. So if He forgave you then why keep bringing it up? The Bible says He remembers our sins no more. So why do we?
“I, even I, am he that Blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.” – Isaiah 43:25
“And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” – Hebrews 10:17
“As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.” – Psalm 103:12
Here it says that He will not remember our sins. They are as far as east from the west. Our sins are under the Blood of Jesus. If God won’t remember our sins why do we. If you keep remembering your sins that are under the Blood than your saying His blood wasn’t enough.
“in whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.” – Ephesians 1:7
His BLOOD is sufficient!
“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” – Isaiah 1:18
I don’t know about you but that excites me! The Blood of Jesus washes us white as snow! There are no smudges on you! There are no dirty spots on you! You are clean!
Yet this is why we remember our sins. There is a battle going on. The devil will try and bring up your past to make you feel guilty. He wants you to feel dirty again. He is mad that your clean. He wants you to be dirty. So I encourage you to Rebuke him and those thoughts 💭. Use these scriptures to fight him. Tell him the Blood of Jesus washes me clean. Don’t let him lie to you. I just gave you ammunition to use. Now go and battle. Jesus already won the war.
There is a song out there. Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Listen to it.
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.” – Acts 3:19
