In honor of Rend Collective’s Good News Tour which visited Pepperdine this past Sunday, I want to start off Worship Wednesdays by featuring one of my favorite songs by them.
Let’s break this apart:
Who hasn’t felt accused by their regrets? When we think about things in our past it’s easy to get caught up and feel like our mistakes are too big to be forgiven. But in Jesus, we know that these thoughts are not true!
When I feel like this, I will preach the gospel to myself. We often forget this too! We aren’t limited in preaching the gospel only to people who are without faith, we can preach the gospel to ourselves and our brothers and sisters as a reminder of the grace we carry around each day. My sin is nailed to the cross, and my soul is healed by the scars. The weight of guilt I bear no more, PRAISE THE LORD.
We are all set free, and we are all forgiven. Don’t let accusations from regret hold you down and prevent you from living the life you are called to live.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” -John 10:10
