We often tend to give into the devil’s claim that we should wallow in our guilt. How could God forgive a wretch like me? I’ve not shown Him the honor He deserves – my life is full of imperfections – even though I want to change, I keep making the same mistakes.
We all fall victim to these misconceptions. We beat ourselves up with guilt and falling short of God’s expectations. Many often give up in despair, believing there is no hope of heaven for them, but the book of Hebrews clearly states that Christ did it all for us. He paid the price with His own blood. He died once for all.
Still we are deceived into believing that we need to do something to work our way to heaven. In doing so, we’re really doing a disservice to the work that has already been completed. This is just how Satan wants us to think.
The perfect sacrifice has been made by the High Priest. It was the only way whereby our salvation could be won. Believe it! It’s true. Our sins have been forgiven and now we wait for His return – when He will come in all His glory to take us to our heavenly home. Now is our waiting time – our time of grace – to share that wonderful news with a sin sick world.
Rejoice in this wonderful free gift from God. Guilt no longer can hold us. We are free at last!
