Give Up the Guilt by Joe Barnett

All have sinned…and are justified freely by his grace. 

Romans 3:23

He was a good man, sincerely sorry for a long-past mistake.  He had confessed his sin and repented, but remained so guilt-absorbed he could hardly function.  He had been to my office several times, dragging his heavy baggage of remorse.

“God must be sad,” I said, “because you don’t trust him.”

“Why do you say that?” he asked.

“Because he promised to forgive you, and you don’t trust him to do it. You have confessed your sin, repented, and asked forgiveness, haven’t you?”

“Yes!” he said, “A thousand times.”

“You should have repented and confessed it once, and thanked God a thousand times for his forgiveness.”

I hope you aren’t spending your days as a spiritual invalid, paralyzed with guilt over a forgiven past.

Don’t keep talking to God about something he’s forgiven and forgotten.

For Those Who Have Keys to the Broadway Building!

On two separate occasions this past week, the building alarm has been set off.  Both times, it was the east hall, side door that was the culprit.  The door can be unlocked from the outside but must also be locked on the outside. The alarm can be set if doors are closed; it cannot detect locked or unlocked doors!  Therefore, if alarm is set and door is unlocked, a simple opening of the door trips the alarm.  Two times in one week!!!  Please, please lock the three back doors if you unlock them.
