“The Challenges We Face” Part 5 “Letting the Past be the Past” July 23, 2017

1 Cor. 6:9-11 – NKJV

*72% of Americans believe in heaven 70% believe they will go there

But now you are:

  1. Washed – To wash off or away
  2. Sanctified- To separate from profane things to dedicate to God, to purify internally
  3. Justified- To declare or pronounce one to be just, righteous or such as he ought to be

Rom. 6:4 – NKJV

Col. 2:12-13 – NKJV

How we are buried and raised up:

  1. Realize that our sin is grievous and carries the death penalty (Rom.6:23)
  2. Realize that Jesus lived a perfect life and laid it down so we could be free
  3. Demonstrate sorrow for our sin by seeking forgiveness through repentance
  4. Make an entire surrender of our life to God (Luke 23:46)
  5. Believe that your sins have been forgiven and washed away (Col. 2:13)
  6. Walk in the newness of life (Rom. 6:4)

*Your past can truly be your past!
