“Agree with God that you have sinned and leave the sin before Him. Then guard yourself from entering into that sin pattern again. Learn a valuable lesson, but do not continue to beat yourself with condemnation. Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. Do not continue to allow yourself or the enemy to defeat you with remembering a sin once you have confessed it to God and those you have offended. There may be consequences of your sin, but you do not have to live with the guilt of it. Even though you have been freed from guilt by confession, do not use it as an opportunity to continue in sin or to leave yourself open for temptation. Continue to choose freedom over sin’s mastery. Lay aside every encumbrance and the sin that so easily entangles you and run with endurance the race set before you (Heb. 12:1). How ? Fix your eyes on Jesus (not your sin, the past, or even yourself). Jesus is the Author and Perfector of your faith (see Heb. 12:2) There is one last response that brings complete freedom . You must forgive and forget the sins of those who sinned against you. Jesus is very clear in Mattew 5:21-24 about what to do with anger toward a brother. But how do you do it ? First choose to forgive them in your heart and then God will help you work through the emotions that remain. You will not be free of the hurt if you harbor bitterness. A quick way to ruin a beautiful complexion is to hold on to an unforgiving, bitter attitude.”
An exerpt from “Lady In Waiting: Becoming God’s Best While Waiting For Mr Right” By: Jackie Kendall & Debby Jones
This quote goes for any sin that you have done, God forgives you and He wants you to know that. If someone has sinned against you, you need to forgive them it is unhealthy to harbor anger against someone. We have all sinned and all fallen short but Jesus died on the cross for our sins so that we can be saved. So don’t let the devil fill you with condemnation, that’s not his place. God forgives you and the devil has no power over it.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
