Before we go on with today’s topic a little reflection on what we did during the week… We saw that “God’s Way” usually differs from our thought and ways…what God says concerning us stand irrespective of what circumstances and situations are saying concerning us… Again in “The Terror of God” we saw the terrific side of God…warning us against taken God’s Word or Warning with levity, as beautiful and loving God is; He also has His consuming side… We must keep away lest we will be consumed… He is a consuming fire… We consider “The Agony of prayer”… we saw Jesus agonizing in the place of prayer and God came through for Him… How much time do you spend interceding on behalf of God’s people, lost soul and those in despair? How do you pray in hours of your need… Hannah prayed and God gave her Samuel… Jabez prayed and God changed his story and blessed him indeed…Beloveth agonizing in prayer is a sure means of Breakthrough so we must always spend time in the place of prayer… listen to God’s Word during the day….In “trusting God First” we saw that that God does not taking it kindly with those who trust in their riches or flesh…we are encouraged to keep our gaze on God our Maker, on Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith… Praise God…

To the glory of God, our week has been very eventful and we return all the Praise to God… today we will be crowning it up with “Repentance”…. What is repentance? Have you experienced it? What are the fruit or results of repentance … all these by God’s grace God will take us through and we will be blessed indeed in Jesus Name…

Come along with us

After John was arrested, Jesus went to Galilee, preaching the good news of God:“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe in the good news!”—Mark 1:14–15

Repentance is one of the most positive of all words. John the Baptist centered his preaching on repentance (Matt. 3:2, Mark 1:4, Luke 3:3). Jesus also preached repentance, commanding His disciples to do likewise (Mark 1:14–15; Luke 24:47). The angel predicted that the Messiah would save His people from their sins (Matt. 1:21). The requirement for this salvation would be repentance.

To repent means to stop going one direction, to turn around completely, and to go the opposite way. Repentance involves a dramatic and decisive change of course. God urges us to repent when the path we are taking leads to destruction. Repentance will save us from disastrous consequences! What a wonderful word! How comforting that the Creator loves us enough to warn us of impending danger!

Our problem is that we think of repentance as something negative. When we recognize our sin, we prefer to “rededicate” our lives to God. We may even tell others we have resolved to be more faithful to God than we were before we failed Him. Yet the Bible does not speak of rededicating oneself. It speaks of repentance! Repentance indicates a decisive change, not merely a wishful resolution. We have not repented if we continue in our sin!

Repentance involves a radical change of heart and mind in which we agree with God’s evaluation of our sin and then take specific action to align ourselves with His will. A desire to change is not repentance. Repentance is always an active response to God’s word. The evidence of repentance is not words of resolve, but a changed life.

Beloveth, have you seen what repentance stands for… a total turn around. It a decisive change not wishful thinking. A radical change of heart and mind in agreement with God’s evaluation of sin… It is meant to save us from disastrous consequences… heed to God’s warning of the impending danger of hell and chose eternal life – the gift of God… Rom 6:23….

Beloveth, life doesn’t guarantee us second chances. There are times when our poor decisions- harsh words spoken to a friend, mistakes made on Job, life choices that aren’t healthy – cost us. We lost the friendship. We are dismissed from our Job. Our health suffers. Even if we have a change of heart, there is no assurance that everything will be okay.

Beloveth…God’s mercy, though, gives us second chance after second chance. Elohe Chaseddi- God of Mercy- showers us with forgiveness and bathes us with lovingkindness. He is always truthful. Always merciful. Always compassion. If we love Him and ask Him for forgiveness, He grants it. Always.

Because He is God of mercy, we can live unafraid. We always have access to peace of mind and heart that He so freely gives in abundance. He Promise to always be with us and to bring us through every troubling situation and every difficult season. Even when the make mistakes are our own doing, He is forever willing to offer forgiveness to a repentant heart.

Instead of worrying about yesterday, God want us to focus on today… are you ready to accept this life saving offer? Then….

Run, run for your dear life… repent today if you are yet to come to our Lord Jesus Christ… accept Him as your personal Saviour and King… Amen!!!… Praise God….. Click here to decide now…. and if have…. Don’t look back… behind is death eternal…. God’s gift through repentance is Life-Eternal… grab it…is all yours… Amen!!!

Have a wonderful weekend… see you on Monday next week by His grace… love you dearly….
