Two Kinds of Guilt

True guilt is an indicator of sin
Revealed by the Spirit within
We all fall short of God's glory
There is great hope at Calvary

Jesus died for our sin, paying the price
By faith, when we accept His sacrifice
We are forgiven and guilt is forever gone
Through the blood of Jesus, God's Son

False guilt has no solid foundation
It is from self inflicted condemnation
Pain from past mistakes or failures
Satan will often use as undue torture

We can take ourselves too seriously
Dwelling on past failures repeatedly
To seek and accept God's forgiveness
Brings inner healing and wholeness

Distinguishing the two types of guilt
Involves the way that our faith is built
True guilt is intensified by His Word
False guilt is diminished by truth heard

Conviction draws us to what is right
Revealed by the Holy Spirit's insight
Confession brings us into submission
Restoration to fulfill His commission

Romans 8:1-2 (NIV)
1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation
for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because
through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of
life set me free from the law of sin and death.

Carol Salter 7/12/09

NOTE:  This poem was partly based on an article
I recently read, which touched me in a special way, so
I cannot take full credit for it.  Some of the thoughts
expressed, however, are from my own experience.
