Guilt vs. guilted

For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God. Rom. 10:4

“The real need is salvation from true moral guilt, not just relief from guilt feelings.” – Francis Schaeffer.  God offers His Son as necessary atonement for our real guilt.  The  Enemy likes guilting people to diminish Christ’s work of grace and to make us feel guilty and condemned. Sometimes we guilt ourselves as if Christ’s atonement is not enough. It is.

Lord, thanks for taking away my real guilt, help me adjust my feelings accordingly.
