People in every culture feel emotions. We feel sad, angry, happy, frustrated, lonely, and mad. Of the many emotions we can experience, guilt stands out as a powerful one.
All of us have felt guilty at some point in our lives. Often, we feel guilty when we violate values that are important to us. As a result, we feel terrible and look for ways to resolve the guilt. The Bible says that all humanity has sinned and fallen short of God's standards (Romans 3:23). What's the way out? Is there a magic "guilt-free" pill? Is there a "no guilt" app that I can download and wipe my guilt away?
The Gospel demonstrates that believing in Christ is the only permanent solution to guilt. When we could not get rid of the guilt, the blameless lamb of God took our sins to the cross. Through His death, Jesus settled the issue of guilt. We are now free to be in a loving relationship with Him. As a result we can love, forgive, and care for others.
We can live as a Gospel Community.
