We are all guilty we’re just not getting what we deserve; we got a “get out of jail free card.” We got mercy because God had mercy on us. God gave us a sense of our guilt to even come to Jesus in the first place! Having a little sin recognition is not a bad thing even tough we are set free from the law, we are empowered to fulfill it. So we keep moving forward this same way in the spirit albeit with full assurance.

John 16:8

And He, when He comes, will convict the world regarding sin, and righteousness, and judgment:

Romans 8:4-6

so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
