Introduction: Everyone of us is dealing in some way, to some degree, with this thing called quilt. Guilt haunts our steps like an angry dog nipping at our heels, burdens our lives with a load at times too heavy to bear, wreaks havoc with our bodies and creates turmoil in our minds, and is probably the primary personal problem in human life today. I want to answer two questions concerning this universal experience of life: first, what do we do with our guilt? And second, what does God do with it?
I. WHAT WE DO WITH GUILT
a. We rationalize our guilt away.
b. We deny our guilt.
c. We run away from our guilt.
d. We can take our guilt to God.
II. WHAT GOD DOES WITH OUR GUILT.
a. God faces our guilt.
b. God forgives our guilt.
c. God forgets our guilt.
