The Shepherd is good and  merciful and abundantly so! “But, what about my sin, when I look back?,” you may ask. The evil one seeking to torment your mind at times by the memories that haunt you, because you have a new nature, “In Christ.” Sin bothers you, satan beats you down,“But God…” has “blotted them all out!! “…having forgiven us all our  transgressions,  having canceled  out the certificate of debt consisting  of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.”- {Col 2:13-14}. The word,“canceled” means “erase!” Like taking a hard drive out of a computer so there is no data, your sin record has been “erased!” through the blood of the LORD Jesus! There is no record, in Heaven of sin against you. His blood has erased it all! Always end with “But God…”  

The accuser will have you sin conscious, the Holy Spirit will have you Christ conscious and will always have you end with hope in Him! His blood paying for your sins, past present, future.  Merciful and good Shepherd! 

  1. The evil one will remind you of your past sin, to tempt you to become disheartened, despondent and divorce you from who you are “In Christ.”  and take your eyes off the LORD and leave you with yourself, without hope. Condemnation. Seeking to turn you inward. The unbelieving conscience will  remind you of past sin, troubling and seeking to divert your attention off the Lord and His business by being occupied with sin. satan injects thoughts to seek to own your attention. You need to renew your mind.{Romans 12:2}. The un-love of others, will seek to remind  you of past sins, failures. “Unloving because “love does not keep records of wrongs.” {1 Cor 13:4-7}. Loveless, bitter, unforgiving people will bring it up and hold it before you to manipulate, keep you down, “But God…” has erased it all.  So three enemies to live your new life, standing with God are,  satan, un-renewed conscience, unloving people. Don’t turn inward and look at past sin and end there, as though there is no blood of Christ or No cross that once and for all dealt with the sin issue.

The evil one will remind you of sin and leave you there, accusing, condemning, tormenting you, seeking to leave you with yourself. But The Holy Spirit, comes to Glorify Jesus Christ and He will lead and leave you with Him, and His Word to affirm and strengthen you.- {John 16:14}.
