Do you ever feel guilty because of your sin? Do you ever feel condemned by God because of your sin? The Bible tells us that there is “no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). If you trust in Jesus, you will believe that His sacrifice upon the cross paid for all of your sin. There is no more guilt to be felt for one who is following Jesus! Certainly, there is room for repentance and sorrow and confession over our sin. But, there is no room for guilt, because we are set free in Christ! Charitie Bancroft wrote the words of the hymn, …
When Satan tempts me to despair, and tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see Him there, who made and end to all my sin.
It is Satan’s ploy to stir the feelings of guilt within you, as if your sins have not been forgiven. A life that believes in Jesus will look to the cross and again be reminded of the utter and complete forgiveness that you have received! A life that believes in Jesus is a life of guilt-free living!
