Most Christians continue to live with a consciousness of sin, and suffer from strong guilt feelings over their mistakes and errors. God’s word teaches that the blood of Jesus makes us perfect in spirit, and gives us a clear conscience.
So many Christians are unaware of all that the blood of Jesus accomplished for us, so they live like they are still sinners who never measure up and “fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Thankfully, the truth is much better than that.
Most Christians are so focused on people’s bad behavior that it is impossible for them to love others with God’s love. The reason for this is a fundamental ignorance of the truth about sin, and what Jesus did through His blood to remove it.
