All people recognize that they have done bad things and at times feel guilty for what they have done. Feeling guilty for the things we have done is not enough to be at peace with God who gave us a conscience regarding right and wrong. God gave us this conscience because we are responsible for our thoughts and deeds regarding the law God has written upon our hearts.
God regenerates His people and provides them a new will to be at peace with Him instead of in the chains of rebellion. The bible says in Eph. 2:8, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God”.
Salvation is wholly the work of God yet all people are responsible to submit to Him because God has clearly revealed Himself both generally and specifically. Listen to the call of the Gospel to repent and place all faith for salvation in Jesus Christ alone. You are called to ask God for wisdom in the truth of Scripture, ask God for forgiveness of sin, and turn away from it. Don’t trust your feelings, trust in Jesus Christ alone!
