Will 2020 Ever End? part 4 from Real Life Church on Vimeo.

If we claim to share a life with Christ and yet continue to walk in darkness, we’re fooling ourselves and not living the truth.  When this happens, we become consumed with guilt.  So how do we get off of the guilt trip in order to live a life complete and full of joy?  Pastor Mike will wrap up this sermon series, “Will 2020 Ever End?” by showing the steps to take when we feel beaten up by guilt.

Will 2020 ever End?

Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against You, You only, I have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that you are justified when You speak and blameless when You judge. Psalm 51:1-4 NASB

GUILT

This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:5-10 NASB

How to Get Off of the Guilt Trip:

1). (Acknowledge the fact of my sin)

“For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, He has also rejected you from being king.”

Then Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned…” 1 Samuel 15:23-24a NASB

2). (Admit the fault of my sin)

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. 1 John 3:4 NASB

3). (Ask for the forgiveness of my sin)

Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the LORD, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7 NASB

These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete. 1 John 1:4 NASB
