And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before.2 Peter 2:20
As Christians we must be careful when it comes to our past. Even though God has rescued us from our former lives, we have to guard ourselves against the devil and his schemes. If he can entice us with our past sins or former lives, then that is what he will do. He will do anything he can to take our focus away from the Lord.
This verse is very clear about going back to our former lives. If we become entangled in sin again, then we are worse off than we were before. Spend some time in prayer every day, thanking God for rescuing you from your past sins.
A Prayer to Remember
May I stay close to you and bask in your love and grace so that I will not become entangled in sin again. Amen.
