Remember that if we truly repent of all our sin, Satan and his smelly minions have no hold over us. They can try to bring up past sin, but we have authority in Christ Jesus to send these nasty things back to the pit of Hell from which they came. Satan and his groupies are all losers and they know their time is running out!
Repentance & Belief In Jesus Christ
Joel 2:12 [ God’s Call for Repentance ] Even now— this is the Lord’s declaration— turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, weeping, and mourning.
Matthew 3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but the One who is coming after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to remove His sandals. He Himself will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Matthew 4:17 From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near!”
Luke 5:32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
Luke 15:7 I tell you, in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over 99 righteous people who don’t need repentance.
John 3:16-18 16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.
Acts 8:22 Therefore repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that the intent of your heart may be forgiven you.
Remember Past Sins No More
Hebrews 8:12 For I will be merciful to their wrongdoing, and I will never again remember their sins.
Isaiah 43:18 “Do not remember the past events, pay no attention to things of old.
Philippians 3:12-21 “Reaching Forward To God’s Goal”
12 Not that I have already reached the goal or am already fully mature, but I make every effort to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by Christ Jesus. 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, 14 I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus. 15 Therefore, all who are mature should think this way. And if you think differently about anything, God will reveal this also to you. 16 In any case, we should live up to whatever truth we have attained. 17 Join in imitating me, brothers, and observe those who live according to the example you have in us. 18 For I have often told you, and now say again with tears, that many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their end is destruction; their god is their stomach; their glory is in their shame. They are focused on earthly things, 20 but our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. 21 He will transform the body of our humble condition into the likeness of His glorious body, by the power that enables Him to subject everything to Himself.
Psalm 25:7 Do not remember the sins of my youth or my acts of rebellion;
in keeping with Your faithful love, remember me because of Your goodness, Lord.
Psalm 51:10 God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
2 Peter 1:8-9 8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they will keep you from being useless or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 The person who lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten the cleansing from his past sins.
