You ARE who you are NOW and will never again be who you once WERE.

Read Ezekiel 33:10-20

"Therefore, son of man, say to your countrymen, 'The righteousness of the righteous man will not save him when he disobeys, and the wickedness of the wicked man will not cause him to fall when he turns from it. The righteous man, if he sins, will not be allowed to live because of his former righteousness.'..."
Ezekiel 33:12

Jesus' blood has redeemed us from all our sins. What is in the past has been forgiven. Allowing past sins to define you is not living the life of Christ.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17

In the same way, all the good things you have done before mean nothing.

"All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags..."
Isaiah 64:6a

So not only is wickedness put in the past, righteousness is as well. Kind of depressing, huh? The good news is that there is one thing that means the same for all days. Jesus Christ. Run to Him, cling to Him, and follow Him with your life.

Your sister in Christ,
