- Are there moments in your past that you regret?
- Take some time to tell God about those moments. How do you think he’ll respond?
- Through the cross, we are offered forgiveness and freedom from sin. Have you experienced that kind of healing?
This week, in Insomnia, we started down the baggage of “yesterday” that keeps haunting us at night. What guilt, shame or regret plays on repeat in your mind? What are the types of anxiety that loop?
If you do not let your past die, it will not let you live. And your past died with Christ on the cross.
He forgave us all our sins... he took it away, nailing it to the cross. (Col. 2:13)
We received Communion together, as a reminder that God’s mercies are new – that his body, broken for you, and his blood, shed for you, give us new life.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. (2 Cor. 5:17-19)
If your past has been keeping you up at night, repent. Receive the forgiveness of God. Come to the table. And find rest.
