Day 235: Let Go (Psalm 119:105-176; 1 Corinthians 5)

“Do you know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened.” -1 Corinthians 5:6-7

In today’s reading, Apostle Paul warns the church at Corinth about the danger of allowing sexual immorality to go on within the church. But the same message applies to us today in every area of our lives.

Are there habits or sins that you’ve held on to even after you came to Jesus? Maybe you’ve learned to justify your actions – like it’s not that bad, or other Christians do it and they’re fine, or that you’ll never be able to change anyways.

When you came to the throne of God for the first time and gave your life to Him, He made you new. Sin no longer has a hold on you. Your past is not your future. But keeping pieces of your old self and your old life impacts your present. Whether its a toxic frienemy or an ex-boyfriend, an addiction or bad habit, or a pile of lies the enemy has been telling you for years about your appearance, abilities or worth- let them go and embrace the new. Don’t let one bad thing from your past taint your future.
