The Lord, is revealing to us the secret to living a transformed life. At the other extreme, the devil would like you to feel that you are condemned; but don’t live in condemnation.
He would, even try to get you to go as far as to doubt your salvation. I want to let you know that he can’t keep you from heaven; but he will try to make the trip as painful as possible. That is why, some people live under a constant cloud of guilt and condemnation. For instance bible says, in Romans 6:8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: To be dead with Christ Jesus” means that, for purposes of divine judgment, we do not stand before God alone, but with the righteousness of Christ himself. As believers, we have received a righteousness from God that is by faith. So, in Christ, our sins have been forgiven and there is no condemnation. Now through the price Jesus paid for us, we can stand before God without fear. Some Christians still allow their past; to haunt them so badly that they have no confidence in their heritage as children of God. Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, is an example of someone who did not allow his past to haunt him or prevent him from fulfilling his destiny.

One noticeable reason, why the past haunts some children of God is their lack of knowledge and understanding of the word of God. It is necessary for every child of God; to possess very sound knowledge of who they are in Christ through God’s word. As revealed in the Bible, any individual who is born again is free from every form of condemnation of past sins. The past should therefore, not torment you if the reality of the scripture has been received in your spirit. Let us look at this passage very closely and learn one or two truths about our new life in Christ. Before you can escape the evils of your past life, the first thing you should ascertain is whether or not you are indeed in Christ, because some people are in Church but not in Christ. The evidence of a life in Christ is outlined in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. This new life is not by your power, but by the power in the Blood and Spirit of Jesus Christ, so don’t live in condemnation.
