Starting Over

Looking back over your life, have you made decisions that you regret? Are you suffering the consequences, frustrated that you’ve been so foolish? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could start your life over, knowing “then” what you know “now?” That way you could avoid the bad choices you made that have made you so miserable! Here’s the good news: you CAN start over! Surrender your heart to Jesus and ask Him to forgive your past mistakes! God is full of grace and mercy and will wipe away your transgressions, as if they never happened! Of course, there are consequences for sin, so forgiveness doesn’t mean that He will erase it from your mind. Remembering helps prevent you from making the same mistakes all over again. God wants you to learn from your sins, but He doesn’t throw them in your face to remind you of what a loser you are! God is a God of love and He will replace your guilt with new understanding, and turn whatever mess you made of your life - into something beautiful! Jesus longs to set you free from the bondage of a painful past. God can rewrite your life’s story - so why not change your life today by “starting over!” Text: Luke 19:10, Psalm 18:20 - 24, Hosea 14:4.
