Do past failures still trouble you? Perhaps regret over a mistake, the betrayal of someone close to you, an undone task, an angry outburst has left you feeling uneasy. You wonder if God really does forgive you. Sometimes he seems like a dark cloud instead of a loving Father.
Jack Miller explains that these are symptoms of a troubled conscience. Don’t try to ignore your conscience. Instead, shift your focus to what Christ has done for you. Depending on Jesus will free you to accept God’s forgiveness and fill you with his peace.
