“The problem with guilt is that it never cheers for you, roots for you, or moves you towards victory. Guilt did not prevent you from sinning the last time and it won’t stop you the next time.
We have a Creator who is actually rooting for us all the way home. Jesus is our brother, friend, Lord, Savior, and King — and he grieves with you, wants the best for you, and is totally in love with you. He is going to work with you on your struggle, your pain, your doubts, questions, and confusion, and when you most want to run back to guilt, he is ready to restore you by his constant steadfast love. This is who he is, and nothing you do can change that.”
