"If you've justified by Christ, if you've been pardoned by Christ, if you've been cleansed by Christ, then you have also been set free from the bondage of sin by Christ as well. If the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed." I preached this yesterday in my sermon based on an observation which has concerned me as of late. I have met too many professing Christians who are always looking backward rather than looking forward. The Christian life is to be lived in hopeful expectation for our future, not in constant regret and guilt about our past. The old man has passed away, behold all things are made new!
