Are you weighed down by guilt?

Even after trusting Christ to save us, most Christians still experience spiritual defeat. One of the mistakes we make is trying to carry the burdens which Jesus already took.

Do you constantly feel guilty about your past? The devil is trying to derail you from your new journey. Remind him and yourself that you are the righteousness of God. Jesus took all your sins and even carried your infirmities.
But if it is a habitual sin, you do need to address the problem. Repent. Committing sin knowingly is exploiting God’s grace. But fear not.
1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Each new day ask the Holy Spirit to help you follow Him more closely as you meditate on the Word and walk in faith.
Now, all glory to God, who is able to keep you from stumbling, and who will bring you into his glorious presence innocent of sin and with great joy.”
Jude 1:24 NLT

Always remember your righteousness is Jesus Christ himself, the same yesterday, today, and forever.
