If you ever had a past mistake thrown in your face, I learned yesterday how you respond to it is key.
I have a new hero. A friend was attacked at work for stuff that she did before she knew Jesus, and it was true, but it wasn’t fair that it was brought back up. She has asked for and already received forgiveness from God.
She’s my hero because she didn’t quit, a lot of people would have just walked out the door and never come back. She responded with an explanation, and then forgave her accuser.
We all have stuff in our lives that we’re not proud of. That’s why we all need Jesus.
The thing is when you decide to believe in God, He forgives you and forgets all the bad stuff. I heard someone describe that so well once when she said, “God’s love for me is scandalous”.
