Guilty Conscience

“Nowadays we don’t want to feel guilty or have a guilt trip laid on us. But if we don’t feel guilty, then our consciences are dysfunctional. Conscience is our internal GPS, programmed by God to direct us to our heavenly destination. If and when we sin, guilt is that audible voice that tells us we’ve departed from God’s navigational instructions and must change our ways by repenting. It motivates us to make things right with God and those we’ve wronged. Guilt is a gift to convicted sinners, pointing them to the way of peace. It’s a “godly sorrow” that leads to salvation.” –Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
