When we disobey God, we feel guilty. The purpose of guilt is not to make us feel bad or make us miserable. The purpose of guilt is to help us understand that we need to ask God to forgive our sins. When we ask God to forgive us, He will make us clean again.
Sometimes we let our guilt become a burden to us. Then we are distracted from following God. God wants us to focus on Him and praise Him for His forgiveness.
Our Bible Reading tells about forgiveness through Jesus. “So Christ brings a new agreement from God to his people. He brings this agreement so that those who are chosen by God can have the blessings God promised, blessings that last forever. This can happen only because Christ died to free people from sins” (verse 15a).
Do you feel guilty because you have not obeyed God? Ask Him to forgive you and make you clean today!
