60-80% of amputees experience the sensation of a phantom limb. Invisible toes curl, imaginary hands try to grasp things, or a ‘leg’ feels so sturdy a patient will even try to stand on it.’ This feeling is also associated with intense pain.

Oftentimes we as Christians hold on to phantom sin in our lives. After we have asked God to forgive our sins, we forget to also forgive ourselves. We let the feeling of guilt for past mistakes haunt us—even after we bring them to God.

Christ died for our sins—all of them. And when we come to Him, He does not condem us, but bid us to “go, and sin no more.”
