Culpability

Being made to feel guilty is condemnation and there’s a huge difference to the conviction of sin which the Holy Spirit does to set one on a clear path, directing one on what to do to make it right. Guilt cannot be fully defined with so many what Ifs and regrets. The further you go into guilt the deeper you sink. Guilt comes from the enemy. A friend shows you the danger to get you out of it.

What is the one thing you’d change in your life? Something that if done differently would avoid hurt or damage to self or others? of cause with the severity varying. To be honest, there are a few things I wish I would change. But I find comfort in forgiving my past ignorance and Blessing the past as well. I Believe our wrongs can and are forgiven if we seek. And the past is gone, the future yet to come but we can choose to be present in the present moment. The best definition of the word sin I have ever come across is missing the mark. While in sin, we are separated from our true selves. We are all born innocent and as we grow we learn of good and bad. Eventually understanding that a life well-lived is that lived in peace. We, therefore, strive for better by being earnest; giving ourselves and others love and kindness.

Be very cautious of people who make you feel guilty. Rise above them, forgive yourself in Christ. Roman 8:1-2 says there’s no condemnation for those who are in Christ. Forgiveness is due to the work of Christ. Once we are reborn again in Christ, our slates are wiped clean and we begin a new, in a world with no sin. This moves us back to God. Live a life free from guilt, but in love and good acts.

  1. Lovely reassuring post. It comforts me to know that once we belong to Him, it is for always and God will never forsake us. Once we accept Christ into our life we are forever His. 🙏
