We were reconciled to God

For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, it is much more certain, having been reconciled, that we will be saved [from the consequences of sin] by His life [that is, we will be saved because Christ lives today].

Romans 5:10 AMP

We have been reconciled by Jesus Christ.  In coming to Christ our sins are washed away and our past no longer remains.  Too many times we get our eyes focused on the past or things we have done before we came to Jesus Christ.  The greatest thing about the gospel is that simply by placing our faith and trust in Jesus Christ that we are forgiven and we are set free.

All of us were enemies of God before coming to Jesus Christ because of the sin that existed in our lives.  It is sin that separates humanity from God.  It was sin that separate Adam and Eve in the garden from the intimacy and fellowship that they had with the Lord.  Today let us let go of the past, let us let go of mistakes that we have made.  Let us instead simply focus our hearts and our lives on Jesus Christ.  Let Him become the focal point of all things.  As we seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, His hand will supernaturally move in our lives.
