Somethings are better left with the dead

I went to a memorial service as part of the normal Wednesday service this past Wednesday. The pastor made mention of "why do you want to know why he died, so you can talk about it?" I am completely paraphrasing.

There are things about me that I hold very close, there are just things in my past that I struggle with because I never should have done them. That was before. It was before God moved in permanently to my heart and became my friend, savior, redeemer, and the whole ball of wax. I think, I KNOW, God has forgiven me, He has forgotten, and maybe someday those things will find their way out to help someone else come to know Jesus, but until then, I think I am going to put them where they belong, on the ocean floor until God decides He needs to use them.

2 Corin 5:16-17 16So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
