2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 

and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

How can we really know how we have hurt others?

How can we really know the consequences of our sins?

How can we really know we've sinned at all?

Only when GOD makes us born again.

That's when awareness starts.

For GOD sends His SPIRIT to teach us.

We are taught about JESUS.

We are taught about Scripture.

We are taught about GOD's laws.

Only then can we become aware of the damage we've done.

Whether to ourselves, or to others.

And how we've displeased GOD.

How we've defied GOD.

How we've turned our backs on Him.

How we've disobeyed His commandments.

But what if we didn't know anything about GOD yet?

Well, there's Scripture to tell us.

It is GOD's book.

It is His story.

His history.

Proof of His love.

Proof of His never-ending patience.

Proof of His promises.

Only by being born again can we know all that.

Unless, and until we have the HOLY SPIRIT in us, we can't understand Scripture perfectly.

Only SPIRIT teaches us perfectly.

JESUS promised:

John 16:13-14

King James Version

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me: 

for he shall receive of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.

It doesn't matter if you're the worst sinner on earth.

Apostle Paul claimed to be that.

1 Timothy 1:15

King James Version

15 This is a faithful saying, 

and worthy of all acceptation, 

that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; 

of whom I am chief.

I, too, claim to be that.

But I get comfort from Scripture.

I am grateful for being born again.

SPIRIT teaches me everything.

How I've sinned.

Who I've hurt.

The consequences of my actions.

Can I undo all that?

Only through GOD's MERCY is that possible.

When He sent JESUS to save us from sin.

Romans 10:9

King James Version

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, 

and shalt believe in thine heart 

that God hath raised him from the dead, 

thou shalt be saved.

JESUS commands we repent.

For the time is "at hand".

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Get right with JESUS now.

Seek GOD with all your heart.

Pray to be born again.

That SPIRIT may teach you all things.

So you become aware.

And start your own healing process.

It's important to know how we've displeased GOD.

How we've hurt others, and ourselves.

It will be tough.

It will be painful.

It will be haunting.

But we'll get there.
