Nothing Matters ~ February 2

Nothing Matters

Except the last thing we did

There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1

Sometimes it feels like all the good things we’ve ever done are erased with one mistake or misdeed. But it’s just not true. Well, I suppose it can be true if the bad thing is bad enough, or we continue to do it, but I’m talking about the mistakes and missteps we all do. There’s not a day that’s gone by that we made no mistakes, and no matter how hard we try not to, we will make mistakes in the days to come.

It’s been said that darkness is merely the absence of light, and maybe the same can be said with regard to good and bad; bad is simply the absence of good. If we focus on God and allow His Spirit to guide us, we will live in His light and the good things we do will cause the bad things to fade into the past. But if we’re focused on our mistakes, God’s guiding light grows dim and we’re left groping in the dark, constantly bumping into the bad things.

Here’s the key: Don’t look at the past. Focus on God, seek His knowledge and will for your life, and live each day with your heart full of His love and hope. If we do this, the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.
