No matter how long we follow Jesus, we are confronted with things in our lives that do not match who Jesus is and the person He has called us to be. They might be things from our past: guilt, shame and regrets we carry from our actions, missed opportunities, things done by us or things done to us. These things have become a part of our stories but also a part of us. In fact, it is hard for us to imagine our lives without these things because of the roles they have played and the impact they have made. But through God’s grace and forgiveness, we have been given a new identity. That doesn’t these things magically disappear, but they are redeemed and we are made new and we have been invited into freedom.
