“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”


2. If you find yourself in a sin you confessed the previous day, don’t allow guilt to discourage you from the Christian race. Don’t give-up but ask God for forgiveness and the divine Power to overcome temptation.

4. The plan of God is not to condemn you but to give you the grace to overcome a guilty life. When the thought of condemnation comes when you struggle with a temptation, please read John chapter 3 verse 17:


“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”


5. Shortly after given my life to the LORD, the thoughts of my old life kept on hunting me, but I refused to feel guilty of changing my bad lifestyle. I always recite second Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17:


“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”


7. Don’t feel guilty because you can’t afford the money your pastor told you to drop for blessing your salvation in Jesus Christ.

8. When you fall many times, please don’t lose your focus in the salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. The LORD is ready to reason with you. Isaiah chapter 1 verse 18 says:


 “‘Come now, and let us reason together,’” says the Lord, ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.’”


The outcome of my reasoning with the LORD gave me the strength to stop sinning. Don’t give-up to condemnation because you can be free from those disturbing thoughts.


9. Devil won’t like you if you are an active Christian. When he comes to whisper to you that the LORD had not forgotten your past sins. Tell him with all boldness that he is a liar!


Hebrews chapter 8 verse 12 says: “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” 

When the wind of guilt blows to your heart while you are serving God, don’t feel bad. It’s the work of the devil, he wants to discourage you from pressing hard on the rough path of righteousness. Don’t be passive with thoughts of condemnation but respond with the powerful word of God in the Bible.
