His Word, never instructs us to feel guilty;
however, the issue of repentance is different.
The Holy Spirit brings conviction out in us,
which serves as a catalyst for personal change.
For we need to grow and not remain indifferent

to the needs of people who intersect our lives.
Condemnation breeds both shame and discontent,
whereby our eyes are cast down away from Christ.
Condemnation negatively pulls at our spirit
and fragile heart in ungodly ways that are meant

to destroy our hope and vision of the future.
Continue to strive by the strength of His Spirit,
not by the stubbornness or weakness of your flesh.
Remember your identity in Christ, as His child,
who has been divinely blessed and set to inherit

the many, holy promises found within His Word!
On a daily basis, Grace and Mercy are conferred
upon us -without reservation- by our loving God!
Therefore, lift up your eyes unto The Lord now;
allow your spirits to be permanently stirred!
