“The Dynamics of Guilt and Grace”

This is the fourth sermon in the “For Good” preaching series, preached on May 26, 2019.

This sermon covers all of Genesis 42-45. The passage read is Genesis 45:1-15.

Guilt locks us into our old patterns and locks us away from connection with God and others.

Q. How have others used guilt against you, to influence you? Has guilt helped you grow or change? Has guilt trapped you in any specific ways?

Q. What does guilt feel like? Are there any physical symptoms when you feel guilty?

Grace frees us from guilt and frees us for forgiveness, and even reconciliation.

Q. Who do you need to forgive, so that you can be free? Someone who’s hurt you? Do you need to forgive yourself?
