BE Freed from YOUR past!
Many people have a spirit of heaviness (Isa 61:3) resulting from earlier experiences. Inside,
they carry memories of events that occurred years ago and they have not been
able to forget them. These might be related to sexual abuse, emotional
rejection or physical violence; perhaps their parents did not want them, or
they suffered some other traumatic injuries. These memories can still weigh
very heavily inside a person and affect his or her present life.
However, we should not allow
ourselves to be prisoners of our past. If we receive Jesus Christ into our
life, our inheritance comes from Him, not from our past; we are saved from our
past by Jesus' redemption.
There are mainly two ways in which
we can obtain freedom. Firstly, we play our own part: we give up our bitterness
and stop our accusations so that we can forgive those who sinned against us.
Secondly, we come to understand our place and identity in Christ. If we
understand the place we have in Christ, and in this truth, then we will
experience freedom from our past.
We will discuss these matters and the
steps that we must take in order to be free from our past.
