God convicts; the devil condemns. It is important to learn the difference.

1. Romans 8:1 God's Spirit does not condemn us. If we are doing our best to obey God, there is no need to feel condemned.

2. 1 John 1:9 Forgiveness comes if we are honest about our sinfulness. We don't need to be perfect to be forgiven, just honest.

3. 1 John 3:20 God can take away condemnation. Society can put guilt on us that never came from God. Don't wear it.

4. 1 John 4:10 We can't love without help from the source of all true love--God. We will never earn God's love, so do not become condemned when you fall short.

5. Galatians 3:1-3 Religious rules can 'bewitch' us away from the teachings of Jesus. Don't be deterred by those who condemn you for not following their rules.

6. Revelation 12:10 The devil is our accuser. God's conviction includes a way to overcome guilt. The devil's accusations don't.

7. John 3:17-19 Jesus didn't come to condemn us. Respond to what Jesus says and you'll be forgiven, not condemned.
