"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23))
I had a group lifestyle coaching session awhile back when a client state, “I don’t believe God could ever love me because I keep repeating the same sins.” She confessed her sins were the character flaws of gossiping and being judgmental toward others.
She stated that when her character flaws were brought to her attention by others, she would ask God for forgiveness. But, she found herself repeating the same cycle over and over again. She was feeling guilty because she had asked God to forgive her, but she didn’t know how to stop sinning. She didn’t know how to break the cycle!
What has occurred with this client is not uncommon! Romans 3:23 tells us: "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." We all will miss the mark until we know the truth, which will set us free.
Everyone comes to God the same way, broken from their past. My client was producing "bad fruit" from wounds of her past and needed to learn how to be set free from her old ways and bad habits.
When we sin, Psalms 51:3-4 tells us, we are sinning against God, our Creator. That is why my client was feeling the conviction in her spirit and sought help to get rid of the guilt.
With our lifestyle coaching program, we identified the root cause of her bad fruit. She surrendered it to Father God and she no longer engages in gossip and has stopped judging others. She stated, "I am finally free from hurting others with my mouth, and I truly know now I am forgiven!" She is currently rebuilding relationships by asking those whom she hurt for forgiveness.
My client now understands Romans 8:1 and doesn't live a life of guilt believing God doesn't love her. She now knows in her mind and heart God does loves her!
