2 Corinthians 5 - Key

v17

Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Sometimes, we can be reminded of our past, and start to worry that we still have the problems that we have already confessed and repented of. It is an amazing encouragement that the Lord has completely transformed us, including healing the old sinful desires of our heart.

Application
1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

In this case, it says that He will ...cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I'll take comfort in the fact that the Lord has cleansed me from, the unrighteous motivations that I have repented from in the past.
