Scripture: Galatians 3:10–13


  • Guilt is the most devastating kind of Debt we can experience.
  • The message from a heart overcome with Guilt is “I owe”.
  • Guilt rots our Personal Relationships and our Present Reality.
  • What we choose to do with our Guilt shapes our Body, Soul, and Spirit.

The Debt of Guilt

  • Our Guilt is a Curse (Galatians 3:10a)

          3 Efforts to Alleviate Guilt:

              1. Intellectual: Turning Vices into Virtues

              2. Physical: Turning Exploits into Escapes

              3. Religious: Turning Moral Law into Mental Pride

  •  Our Guilt is an Indicator (vs.10b)

            Our Efforts are “All or Nothing

            Our Efforts reveal our Failure (Romans 3:20)

  • Our Guilt is Inevitable- We are Born Guilty (Galatians 3:11, Romans 3:10)
  • Our Guilt is NOT an Emotional Crisis, It’s an Identity Crisis (Galatians 3:12)

           Emotional:                           Identity:

           Based On: What I Can Do     Based On: Who I Am

           Action: Fixing                       Action: Surrendering

           Goal: To Feel Better              Goal: To Be Right Before God

The Defeat of Guilt

  • The Holiness of God, the Horror of our Guilt, and the Depth of Divine Grace meet within a Man hanging on a Tree (Galatians 3:13)

Game Changer: Guilt-free living begins with realizing our debt is not paid by our own efforts to temporarily make us feel better. Guilt can only ultimately be Paid-off at the foot of the Cross.
