2 Chronicles 6:38-39
38 if they repent with all their mind and with all their heart in the land of their captivity to which they were carried captive, and pray toward their land, which you gave to their fathers, the city that you have chosen and the house that I have built for your name, 39 then hear from heaven your dwelling place their prayer and their pleas, and maintain their cause and forgive your people who have sinned against you.
2 Corinthians 7:10-11
10 For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death.
11 Just see what this godly sorrow produced in you! Such earnestness, such concern to clear yourselves, such indignation, such alarm, such longing to see me, such zeal, and such a readiness to punish wrong. You showed that you have done everything necessary to make things right.
Repenting with all your heart and mind. A response that I need to work on everyday. What does it look like to repent with all my heart and mind? The proper response of repentance? It is a repentance based on godly grief, not worldly sorrow. The sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. If we were realize repentance from the heart and mind then what would it also result in? A response for such earnestness, such concern to clear ourselves, such annoyance, anger, and frustration towards our sin, such alarm, such longing to see God, such zeal, and such a readiness to punish wrong (v.11). That’s the kind of response of what repentance should look like.
Sorry if this doesn’t make any sense. Just kind of blabbing things out of what’s going on in my head.
If you ever have a chance to worship with her, DO IT.
Titus 3:7 (esv)
"… being justified by his grace we might become heirs…”
Titus 3:7 (nlt)
"Because of his grace he declared us righteous.”
The greatest love story of all. And it’s not just some book that we read from a 3rd person perspective. It’s a love story that involves each and everyone of us.
He wanted to be with us. He wanted a relationship with us. But a real relationship centered around love cannot be forced. It is voluntary. We have the choice to accept or reject God. And knowing humanity, He knew that sin would be something we couldn’t overcome ourselves. But He desperately wanted to be with us. So He planned to send His Son for us. His one and only Son. In order to defeat sin and death. Through the blood of Jesus Christ, He saved me. And now I can be with Him for eternity. The God of Love. The God who loves me more than anyone in this world. I can be with Him now :]
Thank you for the cross Lord. Thank you for your love. Thank you for your mercy. Thank you for your Son. Thank you for you, that someone like you exists in this hopeless world.
