Accept God’s Forgiveness
If I have repented, made amends, and asked for forgiveness, then Christ says I am free of guilt. On those nights when all I see is my sinful heart, when I think there’s no way God can still love me, I choose to believe Christ’s truth: I am forgiven.
If you’re overwhelmed by guilt, remember that Christ forgives and sets you free. Choose to forgive yourself. Then focus instead on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and godly (Philippians 4:8).
