Reconciliation has been promoted throughout the world. Relationship reconciliation. Racial reconciliation. Religious group reconciliation. International reconciliation. Yet, how often do we hold ourselves in bondage for the mistakes that we have in our lives?
Do you ever find yourself saying, “I can never forgive myself for what I did”?
Romans 3:23 declares that all of us are sinners undeserving and unworthy before God. Yet, God has provided an alternative, life-saving route where guilt and conviction can lead us to repentance instead of self-resentment. If we cannot receive forgiveness from God, we are essentially downplaying what Christ did on the cross for us.
