“Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.” Hebrew 10:22 (NIV)
It takes enough actions and gestures of love, from someone in our lives, for us to trust that person, and to have 100% assurance on the person. Even in our place of work, we tend to develop confidence in our bosses or colleagues after they’d proved to us that are capable of the task given to them.
Life between two people, and among a group of people, is practically based on assurance. You will see a little child riding in his father’s car. He knows he needs not fear because the person driving the car is his father, and thus he is assured that no harm will come to him. If the driver is a total stranger, I bet, the child will strongly pay attention to the road or the way the person is driving.
This is similar to when we have assurance in God, when we are at peace that He is in charge. We have nothing to worry about, we believe, we trust and thus we move on in life with our hearts at rest.
There is no more need to get us down or weakened by our guilty conscience, because the Bible says in Roman 8:1, “There is therefore no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus.”
God forgives your sins and forget them all when you confessed to Him, asking for forgiveness. For Him, it’s over. He remembers no more your wrongs, and already wiped them out.
But to you, you still live on with that guilty conscience, which is not necessary; the more you dwell on this, the more you are telling God that He has not truly forgave you.
Learn now to push off and completely any form of guilty conscience. Sin no more, and allow your faith to relax in the Lord. When you do this, you will experience dramatic changes personally in your life.
Let your assurance be on God and Him only. Ask yourself this; ‘Without God, who else?”
