Transformed Emotions-1

We do something wrong or fail to do something right. We justify it; we make excuses. Nevertheless, inside of us is a feeling of guilt, unless, as in I Timothy 4:2, we have a: “conscience seared with a hot iron.” This guilt that we have is toward God and others. It’s a very bad “feeling.” What if we’re found out, exposed? What will they think of us? What will be the consequences? We try to tell ourselves that we can get away with it. Sometimes, we do—here on earth. Many more times, we don’t get away with wrong. Ultimately, however, we get away with no wrong, no sin, no evil. We face God! Even if we don’t believe that, we still will face Him! We will give account in the judgment even down to and including every idle word (see Matthew 12:36). If the only sin we ever committed was to steal a penny, we would be guilty of stealing. A horrible offense against God Who is Holy! We offend His holiness! One sin would demand Hell! God’s holy law was broken! Even with seared consciences, sin does something damaging inside of us and affects others to their hurt. There is an alternative! If we admit to our sin(s), own our guilt and shame, turn away from wrong (repent) and receive Jesus as Savior and Lord, then: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.” (From Romans 8:1). Our guilt and shame is transformed into “forgiven!” We’ve been cleansed and freed!  Jesus paid our sin penalty! In gratitude, we submit to His reign in our lives. Mrs. M. J. Harris penned these wonderful words in her hymn: “He Took My Sins Away): “The load of sin was more than I could bear. He took them all away, He took them all away, and now on Him I roll my every care. He took my sins away.” In the chorus, she adds: “He took my sins away and keeps me singing every day.” Selah! Only Jesus can offer such a full and complete pardon and free us from the judgment due our sin(s)! Has He done that for you?  Ron
