When we are wrong, I mean dead wrong, how easy is it for us to recognize it? Not easy for we think we are right. It is even harder to admit it. But when we come into the presence of God we see truth, for God is truth. We are able to not only experience God we will see our true selves (our rights and wrongs.) We see the need for God in our lives.
But hear this....When he encountered God, the experience with God changed his life. It was like he was born into a new life. That is why Christians call it, born in Christ God called Saul out of his past and gave him this new beginning. Did you hear that, his past was past? He began, a new man? You know, God did not tell him to clean up all the mistakes of the past. He just told him to walk in a different direction. When Paul said, What do you want me to do? God said, Do what I tell you to do.
It does not matter what you did a minute ago or 5 years ago. Some individuals have a hard time putting all their junk in the trash can. Put it there and begin this new relationship now. Our lives in Christ is about the present and future, not the Past.
