When God gives us forgiveness, Satan gives us guilt.
There is a fine line between sorrow and guilt. Both emotions can spring from doing something wrong. But the consequences of these 2 emotions cn be drastically different.
God wants us to be sorry when we have done something wrong. Sincere sorrow is part of the process of repentance. It means we regret what we have done and don't want to do it again. With this type of attitude, God can turn our life around and get us back on the right track.
Satan, on the other handm wants us to fo far beyond sorrow. He wants us to feel guilty, and he uses gulit as an oppresive emotion. It will make our conscience heavy and our focus introspective. Guilt ignores the very reason why Jesus died for us: Forgiveness.
The next time we regret our actions, thank God. Our sorrow is a sign that Jesus is alive and active in our life.
"You are the light of the world.
let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
