Living Guilt Free
“Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord.’ And you forgave the guilt of my sin.”
Are you in an emotional battle because of guilt?
Is your guilt a loving instrument of God used to convict, correct and conform your character when you go astray?
Or do you battle feelings of shame and condemnation when guilt strikes a blow to your heart?
True guilt is your friend, a godly companion who whispers truth and motivates you to repent and be free. False guilt is a relentless foe. It is the enemy within that encourages not godly and superficial sorrow that brings death!
What's the Difference Between Guilt and Shame?
Over the years we have met many people who feel guilt and shame are the same. Well, they’re not.
The goal of guilt is to convict us of committing a wrong act so that we will confess it, be forgiven and then change. The outcome is positive, making us more Christlike in our attitudes and actions.
However, the goal of shame is to convince us that something is intrinsically wrong with us that can’t be fixed or forgiven. Ultimately robbing us of hope and filling us with despair.
Romans 5 says, “…we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance produces character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”
Guilt says, “I’ve done something bad.” Shame says, “I am bad.”
Realize, God gives us hope, hope in place of shame! Hope to overcome our guilt and to actually live guilt free.
