We all have experiences with guilt, regret, and shame. No matter how long we follow Jesus, we are confronted with things in our lives that do not match who Jesus is and the person He has called us to be. They might be things from our past or even our present. These things can become a part of our stories and who we are. In fact, it is hard for us to imagine our lives without these things because of the roles they have played and the impact they have made. But Jesus invites us to be free from the guilt, shame, and regrets of our past. That doesn’t mean these things magically disappear, but they are forgiven and reconciled so we can live in the freedom Jesus offers.
