Top Takeaways from today’s show My Past Defines Me:

You may not come out and directly say, “My past defines me.” However, you may say something like, “I don’t deserve this. I have done this, so I deserve this.” (You fill in whatever “this” is for you.)

We limit God because we believe that what we have done in the past is too big.

We believe it is too much, and way too sin-filled for His blood to make us new. 

Most of us are either past focused or future-focused but rarely ever present focused. 

Our salvation and who we are isn’t based on our works or what we do or have done. 

Ephesians 2:8-10 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Your past doesn’t define you because when you said yes to Jesus, He took care of the balance, and your past says paid for. 

Your past does not define your future, and it doesn’t define you. 

If we hold on and continue to label ourselves by something God didn’t give us or already took care of, it’s like saying He’s not enough. What He did isn’t enough to cover what I did.
