Guilt-Free Living (Sunday)
FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
One time the devil came to Martin Luther with a roll of paper that had a list of all the sins that Martin Luther had committed. Satan said, “So many sins that you have committed, still dare you to call yourself the Son of God?” With a sneer and a mocking smile, the devil awaited Luther’s reaction. Although he was surprised for a moment, Luther calmly brought all the scrolls of paper to his room. With blood-red ink, he crossed all the writing on the scrolls of paper. And in a triumphant voice, he said, “Yes, my sins are many, but the blood of the Lamb of God has taken away all my sins! God has forgiven me and I have the right to be His child. Go, you devil! ” The devil was shocked to hear those words, then rushed away!
We may have experienced the Martin Luther story as well. We experience intimidation from the devil because we have committed a mistake or sin. Yes, everyone must have felt guilt, whether guilt is acknowledged or not, which is certain that everyone has experienced it. There is a good sense of guilt, which is a signal from the Holy Spirit so that we can repent and not repeat the mistake. But there is also guilt which is intimidation from the devil so that it makes our souls and spirits sink and it is difficult to get up. For us to experience the fulfillment of God’s glorious year, we need to be free from all these wrong guilt.
