God’s Grace Covers Your Guilt

“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1 NLT, second edition)

Guilt is basic to the human existence. Since no one is perfect, we all are tempted by guilt over our past mistakes. Sin brings guilt.

That means our need for grace is as basic to our lives as the existence of guilt.

God doesn’t want you to walk around feeling guilty. That’s why God sent Jesus to the cross to die for all of your sins.

The Bible says, “By the blood of Christ we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven. How great is the grace of God which he gave to us in such large measure!” (Ephesians 1:7-8a TEV)

This is the most basic truth of Christianity: Jesus Christ has already paid for your sins. You only need to accept it. Because Jesus died for us, we’re free from condemnation, worry, and death. Even if there were no eternity, it would be worth it to become a follower of Jesus in order to escape the guilt.

Romans 8:1 says, “So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus” (NLT, second edition). “No condemnation” means God doesn’t judge you for all you’ve done wrong if you’ve trusted Christ because Jesus took that judgment upon himself on the cross. God doesn’t have to judge you because Jesus was judged. He doesn’t have to condemn you because Jesus took your condemnation. 

That means you don’t need the guilt. Notice that it doesn’t say that after you become a Christian, you won’t sin. You’ll still sin. You’ll still make mistakes. You’ll still fail and look stupid. But Jesus has paid the price for those failures.

You are free from guilt!
