"The good news of the Gospel is that in spite of our total moral bankruptcy, God keeps on doing business with us. Notwithstanding the hopelessness of our predicament, God has found a way to bridge the gap, restore us to a relationship with Himself, and to bring healing to the damaged areas of our personalities.

Where sin abounded, grace abounded more. Romans 5:20 NIV

That same grace can make you strong enough and brave enough to take off your super self mask and begin to look at your real self. For it's your real self which God loves and for which Christ died. Your real self with all its sins and flaws which He has always known and never stopped loving." Healing Grace: David Seamands (pg. 121)

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13b-14. NIV

Forgetting does not mean losing all memory of our sinful pasts, but leaving it behind as done with and settled.

But sin doesn't have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace. When it's sin versus grace, grace wins hands down. Romans 5:20 The Message

He breaks the power of cancelled sin, He sets the prisoner free. O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing Charles Wesley
