Guilt is Good

guilt-is-goodThere are two schools of thought when it comes to weighing yourself in attempting to lose weight. One is to weigh yourself only once a week and the other is to do it daily.
When it comes to walking with Jesus, we must weigh ourselves moment by moment. The Spirit uses guilt like a scale registers weight gain. It’s to get our attention. “Hey, you’re going the wrong direction.” You can ignore it and continue to stray from Jesus, which only brings further pain through loss of joy, peace, satisfaction and so on.
True guilt, meaning we’ve actually done something wrong/sinful, is the Spirit calling us to repent, change directions, to get back to Jesus, the source of all the good.
Feeling guilty is your choice. You choose it by making the choice to step away from Jesus and then continue by ignoring the Spirit’s call to return. Scripture, however, says if we confess our sins Jesus is faithful to forgive and to cleanse us from all guilt (1 John 1:9).
Choose to get rid of guilt by acknowledging what you’re doing is sin. Asking Jesus’ forgiveness. And then taking action, a faith step empowered by the Spirit, to now do what Jesus said to do. Guilt will be replaced with peace…guaranteed.
