Guilt and Obedience

“David’s conscience troubled him after he had taken a census of the troops. He said to the Lord, “I have sinned greatly in what I’ve done. Now, Lord, because I’ve been very foolish, please take away Your servant’s guilt.”” 2 Samuel‬ ‭24:10‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
 
“David went up in obedience to Gad’s command, just as the Lord had commanded.” 2 Samuel‬ ‭24:19‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
 
In the same chapter David experiences guilt and then practices obedience. This is many of my days as well. The guilt I feel over my sin helps me be obedient in future. As believers, we do not need to wallow in our guilt, but we can let it lead us to the merciful, loving and gracious arms of our Lord and Savior. Don’t let guilt of your sin overtake you, let it take you to Jesus! As you experience this grace and love, you will want to be obedient in the future… His kindness leads to repentance (Rom. 2:4).
 
Have you trusted Jesus and your Lord and Savior? Have you let Jesus take your guilt and shame in exchange for his right standing with God? All it takes is faith… For more info on how to be freed of your guilt contact me
