If you’ve prayed a repentance prayer and still don’t feel guilt free, sometimes saying a prayer is not enough. Sometimes we must reconcile to be free, to have no condemnation:
“There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit” – Romans 8:1
“If therefore you are offering your gift [lifting up ‘holy’ hands to the Lord] at the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift [worshiping in Spirit and in truth].” – Mt. 5:23-24
This is why Paul was able to say:
“..I also practice always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men” – Acts 24:16.
Where we spend eternity depends on this, but reconciliation will also bring in revival (when we’re ‘ONE’ in Christ – John 17):
“Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.” – James 5:16a
God is waiting to pour out His grace on us when we actually do Jesus’ greatest two commandments.
If our consciences condemn us, this probably isn’t the Devil, as many pastors teach. This is the Holy Spirit warning us to get right with each other so we can be clean and FREE from guilt — ‘ONE’ with each other!
To be going-to-heaven Christians and for Jesus to fill us with His joy and peace, we must be right with each other.
Let us be ‘ONE’ “that the world will know!”
