It’s so easy to feel guilty when you’re a Christian. Too many of us succumb to the voices that speak to our insecurities.
“Oh, why did I do that?”
“I’ll never do that again?”
“Why can’t I be like…?”
I know I have! I’ve read The Word and still failed. I’ve known the truth and still believed the lie. I’ve spent times repenting over and over. Now I know, God doesn’t want us to feel we have to do that. He wants us to choose to change. We are to strive to serve Him with our whole heart.
I’m awestruck by our God. I want His majesty to fill my heart. Please remember, God doesn’t lose sleep over our sins. He sent Jesus to take care of them. You know what God does? He watches us condemn ourselves for our humanity. We have to accept that we won’t ever be perfect. If we turn our heart toward God. We must want the truth. The truth about His love for us, the gifts He’s placed inside of us, the Spirit He’s sent to comfort us, and the things He wants us to change. We must embrace the truth because through it we come to know God.
Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you. (1 Samuel 12:24 KJV)
