SAVED BUT GUILTY
WRITTEN BY: EUNICE ISEOLUWA OYEKUNLE
Whenever a sinner is saved, the Devil becomes so infuriated and angry because he just lost a soul.
Some people will say that the Devil does not rest and that only believers do- well, I can’t agree less. No wonder the Bible refers to him as a roaring Lion looking for whom to devour.
After a sinner is saved, the Devil tries to use different instruments like guilt, fear, worry and anxiety, besetting sins amongst others to snatch that person away from the righteous path. As believers, we must not be ignorant of the devices of the Devil. Many believers prefer to stay in their guilt and beat themselves up instead of going to God to ask for forgiveness. They feel so bad and unworthy and think about God as a taskmaster who cannot be approached.
This and more are what some believers face. The Word of God says in 2Cor 5:17 that ‘’Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away. Behold, all things have become new.’’
That is what God is saying about us- no matter the gravity of sins that you might have committed, God still wants you to come to Him! Listen to what He’s got to say to you in the verse below and let it be a fortress for you no matter how far you have gone:
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
May God help us all in Jesus name.
I hope that we have been inspired by this short piece. Thanks for reading to the end.
