WHITE CHRISTMAS – Part 4: The Ghost of Christmas Past

 

KEY SCRIPTURES: Isaiah 1:18 (NLT); Ephesians 2:8-9

 

THE GHOST OF THE PAST

  • We can BURY IT
    • You cannot bury it, you have to allow your past to be HEALED!
  • We can BEAT OURSELVES UP
  • We can BLAME OTHERS

 

IF YOU’RE GOING TO GET PAST YOUR PAST…

  1. You have to BELIEVE WHAT GOD SAYS about you. (2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Timothy 1:13-15)
  2. Stop trying to EARN FORGIVENESS
  3. DEFEAT EVERY LIE with the truth. (John 8:44; 1 Corinthians 1:30 NLT)
  4. Allow God to TURN IT AROUND for good. (Romans 8:28; Genesis 50:20)

 

KEY POINT

You don’t need FORGIVENESS, you need FAITH.
