Acts 2:38 …then Peter said to them, repent.
Freud said, “guilt was the cause of most depression and neurosis,” he was right. However, he was wrong when he attacked the guilt instead of the cause of the guilt – sin! If we remove the guilt before sin is removed, it’s like relieving a headache caused by a brain tumor and the cancer continues to grow undetected.
We are guilty and it’s right that we feel guilt until we have been to the cross for cleansing, deliverance, and healing. If you don’t know how to repent, turn to Psalms 51:2 and read it. Get on your knees, and make this your prayer; “wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.”
