Defeating Guilt through Christ 

From CDM

We all make mistakes. Constantly contemplating all of them, however, is a mistake in itself. Doing so eventually results in guilt and an evil conscience, and causes us to think differently than the way we should. We tend to do whatever we meditate on; therefore, renewing our minds according to the Word of grace keeps us from feeling guilty and sinful.
The danger of constantly thinking of our shortcomings is that we become more aware of what

When we try to accomplish something through our own merits and we fail, we feel guilty; if we hang on to guilt long enough, it becomes shame. This isn’t God’s will for us. When He was on the cross, Jesus forgave us so that we could forgive ourselves when we miss the mark. Everyone who believes this won’t be put to shame.
Jesus’ blood obtained eternal redemption for us. Faith in the sacrifice He made on our behalf rescues us from the mindset of depending on our self-efforts. Christ shed His blood to purge our conscience from dead, empty works to serve the living God.
This means we have a decision to make. We can either have faith in Jesus, or in our own performance. Making Him our Savior and Lord of our lives frees us from the heavy burden of guilt and shame we were never meant to carry in the first place, because there’s no condemnation for those who belong to Him. If we’re tired, worn out, and burned out on religion, living the life of grace allows us to live freely and lightly.
Prayer:
Lord, Jesus shed His blood to free us from negative emotions and guilty consciences. He went to the cross because He knew we would need Your forgiveness, first, so we could forgive ourselves for our flaws and shortcomings. We’re thankful for this. In Jesus’ name, amen.
