Now it’s your turn

  

Do you feel Guilty?

   

Guilt…
the fact of having committed a specified or implied offense or crime

Here’s what the Bible says about guilt

Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!
Keep me from stupid sins,
from thinking I can take over your work;
Then I can start this day sun-washed,
scrubbed clean of the grime of sin.
Psalm 19:13

Guilt is banished through love and truth;
Fear-of-God deflects evil.
Proverbs 16:6

It’s not right to go easy on the guilty,
or come down hard on the innocent.
Proverbs 18:5

The wicked are edgy with guilt,
ready to run off even when no one’s after them;
Honest people are relaxed and confident,
bold as lions.
Proverbs 28:1

You can’t whitewash your sins and get by with it;
you find mercy by admitting and leaving them.
Proverbs 28:13

23 This is how I want you to conduct yourself
in these matters.
If you enter your place of worship and,
about to make an offering,
you suddenly remember a grudge a friend has against you,
24 abandon your offering,
leave immediately,
go to this friend and make things right.
Then and only then,
come back and work things out with God.
Matthew 5:23-24
Everyone who makes practice of doing evil,
addicted to denial and illusion,
hates God-light and won’t come near it,
fearing a painful exposure.
John 3:20

Jesus said,
If you were really blind,
you would be blameless,
but since you claim to see everything so well,
you’re accountable for every fault and failure.
John 9:41

1 Those people are on a dark spiral downward.
But if you think that leaves you on the high ground
where you can point your finger at others,
think again.
Every time you criticize someone,
you condemn yourself.
It takes one to know one.
2 Judgmental criticism of others
is a well-known way of escaping detection
in your own crimes and misdemeanors.
But God isn’t so easily diverted.
He sees right through all such smoke screens
and holds you to what you’ve done.
3 You didn’t think,
did you,
that just by pointing your finger at others
you would distract God from seeing all your misdoings
and from coming down on you hard?
Or did you think that because he’s such a nice God,
he’d let you off the hook?
4 Better think this one through from the beginning.
God is kind, but he’s not soft.
In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand
and leads us into a radical life-change.
Romans 2:1-4

Make this your common practice:
Confess your sins to each other
and pray for each other
so that you can live together whole and healed.
The prayer of a person living right with God is
something powerful to be reckoned with.
James 5:16

8 If we claim that we’re free of sin,
we’re only fooling ourselves.
A claim like that is errant nonsense.
9 On the other hand,
if we admit our sins,
—make a clean breast of them—
he won’t let us down;
he’ll be true to himself.
He’ll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing.
1 John 1:8-9

  1. Some people need a gut check to release who they are. I love the bible references.
