Sermon Illustrations

Friends and family, this you need to hear and understand today. If you are one who has believed from your heart in Jesus Christ as the One who shed His blood and died to pay the penalty for your sins and then rose bodily from the dead on the third day just as He said that He would, and you now have Christ in you, the hope of glory, then for you every single day is a brand new beginning.

Do not dwell on the past. Do not dwell on the sins of your past or the guilt of things confessed and purged by the flow of forgiveness that was procured and provided at the cross of Calvary.

When you find yourself in remorse over yesterday or dread of tomorrow just remind yourself who is the accuser of the brethren and remind yourself of who your Advocate is, who stands before the Throne declaring you to the Father. Because with Him your relationship is perpetually new. - c.e.t.
