The past

The past
The other day I found a snakeskin outside of my garage door. It was long and scaly and freaked me out for a few minutes, as I remembered that that means there's a snake nearby.

But, the cool thing about a snakeskin is the fact that they can shut off all of their old stuff to make way for new stuff. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we were able to do that as well. To just get rid of all of the garbage and the guck in our lives and get prepared for a new fresh skin.

Well, this is what happens when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Our old selves, which are filled with sin our shed off of us. They might be lurking in the bushes somewhere but they're not on us anymore.

As hard as you try with an old snake skin to put it back on, it is going to inevitably come right back off. And it's the same way with our old selves. We have to quit trying to put and remember all of the things that we have done in the past back on again.

When Jesus took our sins upon the cross, he took it for all times. There's no going back. So if Jesus already took it, why do we keep putting it back on. Forget about it. Lay it aside and leave it sitting in the bushes.

Trust me, everybody's got an old snakeskin sitting around somewhere. You were not the only one who has done 10 million things that you regret in life. Every single one of us regret things and wish we could turn back the pages, but we just have to get to the point where we quit thinking about that. Shed it and leave it.
