GUILT

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:1 (NKJV)

One of Satan’s most potent weapons is the fraudulent use of guilt in your life. He enjoys seeing you wrestle with unnecessary guilt. He understands that if unresolved, it can lead to a miserable Christian existence, destroying joy and peace.

This doesn’t have to happen to you or any believer. God has made full provision for the problem of guilt through proper understanding of His remedy and discernment of Satan’s deceptive tactics.

When Jesus died on the cross, He paid the penalty of your sin and its condemning guilt. You are forgiven of all your sins—past, present, and future. Your sin debt is paid in full when you receive Christ as Savior. When you sin after salvation, the Holy Spirit CONVICTS YOU of specific transgressions. Any guilt feelings are the Spirit’s loving prompting for confession and repentance.

If you seem to be walking around in a cloud of guilt but you cannot point to a specific act of sin, then it is a lie of Satan. REJECT IT. REFUSE IT. God loves you unconditionally and never puts false guilt on you.
