What do you do with guilt?

What do you do with guilt?

In Ephesians 1:4-13, Paul is expanding on the fact that we have been blessed with EVERY blessing (v3). If you thought that statement was outrageous, then they only keep getting bigger!

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,
(Ephesians 1:7 ESV)

Well everybody's got a secret, son
Something that they just can't face
Some folks spend their whole lives trying to keep it
They carry it with them every step that they take
Bruce Springsteen, Darkness on the edge of town

What is that thing that you would hate anybody to find out about?
Good news - there is forgiveness.

Jesus knows everything about us - thoughts, words, actions - and, out of love for us, died on the cross in our place for our sins. Click to Tweet this  
In Jesus we have forgiveness - our sins are taken as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). That means they are completely gone because - if you travel north for long enough, you will eventually be travelling south, but you can travel east forever. Our sin being removed from us as far as the east is from the west is an infinite distance. We are clean, washed, pure before God.

Live in the freedom that forgiveness brings today.
