Romans 6:4 says, “…just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” The Amplified says, “…by the glorious (power) of the Father, so we too might (habitually) live and behave in newness of life.”
We have no past except in our thoughts.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” The Amplified says, “…Behold, the fresh and new has come!”
Ephesians 4:23 Amplified says, “And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind (having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude).”
Each time we think of something in our past, we are renewing our mind. If it is a negative thought, then we are digging a deeper rut. Each time we meditate on God’s Word, we are renewing our mind. Which is beneficial for your present?
