The feeling of guilt…

Tonight I thought a cop was following me.

I realized the all too familiar feeling that sweeps over me whenever I realize a cop near by…the feeling of guilt….

I have been curious about this but haven’t really been able to figure it out….

Most often I am within the limits of the law, and yet I can’t quite shake the fear of being caught….

I would guess I am not alone. I have figured this out by the number of brake lights that are applied when a cop car is seen.

As we journey through Holy Week, I wonder why I don’t experience the same feeling when I see the cross….

I would like to be more aware of what the cost of my sin has been and where because of Jesus, I can embrace GRACE….

I am hoping somehow the feelings I carry when I see a cop car can be neutralized.

I am hoping that I will always feel the sorrow of my sin when I see (or consider) Jesus on the cross….and always consider the invitation to confess, repent, embrace Grace and Celebrate!
