How You Can Start Over...And Be Free Again
Today can be the beginning of a spiritual transformation
for you.The Apostle Paul was referring to this kind of transformation when
he wrote to his Christian friends in Corinth,“Do not be deceived. Neither
the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes,
nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor
slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.And that is what
some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians
Many Corinthians had serious sins in their past,
but they changed their ways and asked God for forgiveness.They were forgiven
How do you begin that kind of transformation? You
can’t manage it on your own.You need God’s power. And where do you find
that? You ask for it. It’s as simple and as powerful as that.
It’s always possible to start over again with God,
no matter what the sin.The God who made the universe out of nothing can
easily take your past and transform it into something beautiful if you
give Him permission, and then let go and trust Him. It all begins with
confessing your sins – telling God you’re truly sorry and asking for His
God will forgive any sin, great or small.All you
have to do is ask Him for forgiveness with a humble, repentant heart and
be firmly resolved not to commit the sin again.
Why not ask Him for forgiveness right now? (If you’re
catholic, simply go to Confession. And don’t worry, priests have heard
it all and they’re there because they want to help you.) Speak to God,
and the spiritual transformation will begin today.
Ask Jesus to help you – to change you – and He’ll go to work immediately.
He loves you. He’ll wash your wounds. He’ll forgive you and fill you with
His Spirit and you’ll become a new person in Christ.
