Yesterday we spoke about many of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. We also touched on the idea that forever freedom is possible (eternal life in Jesus Christ ) as explained in Romans Chapter 6. Today, I would like to talk about another freedom enjoyed by Christians, freedom from our past, present and future mistakes. WOW. Is that actually possible? Can we actually live life free of guilt and regret? Yes, we sure can. Our conscience may remind us of choices were not proud of but it doesn’t have to be so. In fact, we never need to worry about our imperfections again.
Sounds to good to be true, a life with peace of mind and peace with all of ourselves, including our flaws and struggles. It is; however, possible through belief in the power of Jesus Christ who bore all our griefs. Isaiah Chapter 53 says it best. See for yourself and meanwhile, here is verse from the chapter:
“It was our weaknesses that he carried. It was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought it was a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crusheed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. ALL of us like sheep have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all”. This freedom, as most, comes at a great price, yet, we live free of guilt and shame and regret each day. How privileged we are!
