"Are You A Christian Struggling With Guilt?"

~ Pastor Ron Edmondson ~

"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it." John 3:17

Are you a believer, but you can't seem to shake the feeling of guilt? You know God saved you, but you still feel so much guilt from your past.

I need to assure you today that, in my understanding of The Word of God, guilt does not come from God. The devil often uses guilt to keep us from doing The Will of God and growing in our relationship with Christ Jesus.

Guilt has to do with condemnation. You feel the "weight" or "sentence" of your sin. But didn't Christ die for that condemnation?

The next verse after John 3:16, the famous and familiar verse, reminds us that God sent Jesus Christ to save, not condemn. Romans 8:1 say there is "no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

The very definition of guilt has to do with remorse for having done something wrong. Furthermore, guilt is being responsible for an offense. A Christian's sin's have been pid for of The Cross at Calvary! One of the very dedinitions of guilt is "guilty conduct, sin."

The sin debt of any believer is heavy, but every bad offense we have ever committed has been covered over by the grace of Jesus Christ. We still sin, but Jesus Christ doesn't get back on the Cross. His death was sufficient for all our sins. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus!

Please don't misunderstand, you may feel sorry for your sins and ask God for forgivness. That's what we call repentance, but God's motivation factor in obedience is love, not guilt. God guides His children to obey Him with a loving hand. Sometimes God's love for us involves discipline.

Many times we suffer the consequences of our sins. God will lead us to follow Him exclusively, but He will do it with love, not with guilt.

Jesus Christ did not come to earth to bring condemnation. He came to bring salvation to all who would believe in Him.

Father we thank You today that there is no guilt for the persons who knows, loves and believes in Your Only Begotten Son, Who Is Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
