5 Jesus Wept: The Bible and Human Emotions Our Goal {3} These lessons look at human emotions and give us biblical principles on how we can understand our emotions and seek the power of the Lord to bring them under His loving sovereignty. We’ll look at Bible characters, focusing on their emotional reactions to whatever befell them, good and bad, and ask: What can we learn from their experiences that can help us with ours?

6 Jesus Wept: The Bible and Human Emotions Lesson 5, January 29 Jesus Wept: The Bible and Human Emotions Lesson 5, January 29 Guilt

7 Guilt Key Text Psalm 130:3, 4 NIV “If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness; t herefore you are feared.” “That’s why you’re worshiped” (Msg).

8 Guilt Initial Words {55} A sense of guilt although often unpleasant, can be used by God to lead sinners to repentance and to the foot of the Cross. Sometimes, however, the guilt mechanism makes people feel guilty about something for which they are not responsible. But when the sense of guilt is justified, it serves as a good conscience.

9 Guilt Quick Look 1. Shame and Sorrow (Genesis 3:16-19) 2. Sapped Strength (Psalm 32:3, 4) 3. Sheer Forgiveness (Romans 8:1)

10 Guilt 1. Shame and Sorrow Genesis 3:16-19 NKJV “To the woman He said: ‘I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception…. Your desire shall be for your husband…. Then to Adam He said…in the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground…. ”

11 1.Shame and Sorrow Finger Pointing {56} Guilt brings about a seemingly automatic reaction to place the blame on somebody else or to justify one’s own behavior with argumentation. But blaming others does not work well for interpersonal relationships and poses a barrier to God’s forgiveness. The true solution consists of accepting full responsibility for one’s own actions and seeking the only One who can provide freedom from guilt.

12 Sometimes people suffer from guilt for the wrong reasons. Close relatives to those who commit suicide, survivors of a massive accident or calamity, and children of a recently divorced couple are typical examples of what is, in most instances, unfounded guilt. People in these situations need to be assured that they cannot be held responsible for the behavior of others or for unforeseeable events. 1.Shame and Sorrow Finger Pointing {56}

13 People affected by guilt think on it repeatedly, lamenting the fact that they did what they did, showing fear for the consequence, and entering into self-blame. Unfortunately, no matter how much time is devoted to recalling those thoughts, the past will remain unchanged. Repentance and forgiveness are required. 1.Shame and Sorrow Finger Pointing {58}

14 Guilt 2. Sapped Strength Psalm 32:3, 4 NKJV “When I kept silent, my bones grew old through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy on me; my vitality was turned into the drought of summer.”

15 2. Sapped Strength Manifestations of Guilt {60} “Psychosomatic disease” refers to physical symptoms caused largely by psychological processes. Guilt causes immediate deterioration in behavior and can, in the long run, destroy physical health.

16 2. Sapped Strength Manifestations of Guilt {60} A conscience also may become seared by: (a) repeated violation of correct principles until no sense of wrongness remains and (b) strong environmental influences that cause one to view something wrong with indifference or even as good.

17 2. Sapped Strength Manifestations of Guilt {62} Peter’s weeping led to repentance, to a change of heart and to a true conversion, no matter how painful the process itself. We need to see ourselves as we really are, to see what’s really in our hearts and what treachery we are capable of—and then we will fall, broken like Peter, before the Lord.

18 Romans 8:1 NKJV “ There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” Guilt 3. Sheer Forgiveness

19 Full and Complete {64} God’s forgiveness is so great, so deep, and so wide that it is impossible to understand fully. Even the best quality of human forgiveness cannot compare with that of God. He is so perfect, and we are so flawed; and yet, through the provision God Himself provided in Jesus, we all can have full and complete pardon.

20 Psalm 103:12. “As far as the east from the west…has He removed…from us.” Isaiah 1:18. “Though…like scarlet…shall be as white as snow.” Micah 7:19. “You will cast all…into the depths of the sea.” 3. Sheer Forgiveness Full and Complete {64}

21 EGWhite Bible Training School May 1915 Final Words {66} “When sin struggles for the mastery in the human heart, when guilt seems to oppress the soul and burden the conscience, when unbelief clouds the mind, who lets in the beams of light? Whose grace is sufficient to subdue sin, and who gives the precious forgiveness and pardons all our sins, expelling the darkness, and making us hopeful and joyful in God? —Jesus, the sin-pardoning Saviour.”
