Look not behind thee

This last week I've been thinking about our Savior Jesus Christ and all that he has done for us. One of the things that stands out to me about Christ is how he forgives everyone when they try their best to change for the better. Everyone will make mistakes at some point in their life. We can be forgiven by Christ when we change for what is right.

When I think of Repentance, the story of the woman taken in adultery come to my mind, in St. John Chapter 8 Verse's 10-11. Which says:

" 10. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
  11. she said, no man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."

I think of the mistakes I have made, and the promise that Jesus had made to each of us. He asks of us to turn away from the sins we have committed, which means to stop whatever sin we have done and to not repeat those mistakes again. (Like the picture above "Look not behind thee"). Doing this shows our Heavenly Father that we are sorry for what we have done. If we do this he will forget the mistakes we have made. If we follow Christ and his perfect example we can grow closer to him and our Heavenly Father.
