This is a topic that needs to be heard but isn’t talked about much because of the response it gets.
How important repentance is.
Whenever the topic comes up the first thing comes in people’s minds are “Oh this person is gonna judge me and say we going to hell”
Well I’m here to say that thats not the approach I’m going with this. I did things in my life, I was no saint.
I’ve lied, commited sexual immortality , cursed, lust, you name it. If it was left for my works, my destination was hell. Thankfully God sent His only son to die on the cross so I can be saved. His grace is the reason we have a chance for we aren’t worthy.
The first step is not to stop sinning then turn to God because we are too weak. If we try to do things from our own will especially addictions, we WILL fail.
You need to cry out to God with all your heart and tell Him you want to change and mean it.
I was lost in sin, I knew about God but I still did the things I use to do. After a while I started to feel guilty about the things so I decided I need to stop. I tried to do it my way using my will power and not asking God to help me.
I failed miserably.
After the things build up over years and years I couldn’t take it and I cried out to God because I wanted to be set free.
When I tell you that I felt a indescribable peace, I’m not exaggerating. The weight was lifted off of my shoulder and the urge of sin was gone. Temptation arise and I fallen short but I quickly repented and felt the love surround me.
The thing about talking about repentance is not to make people feel like they’re more than others. Its to have a close relationship with God and to please Him. Its for people to know that things need to change. All God wants from us is our heart, even the broken hearted. We tried it our way and we still have a hole in our heart that only God can fill.
The bible says in John 14:15 if you love Jesus you will follow His commandments. Yes God is love but He’s also a God of judgement.
The biggest lies the devil can plant in your head is that you’ve done too much to be saved and that we don’t need to repent.
God choose Paul (who killed Christians before) to become an Apostle.
David was a man of God but fell into sin but lusting, commit adultery and murder. God forgave him.
Your sin is not too big for God.
Your addiction is not too big for God.
Your circumstance is not too big for God.
Turn to Him with all your heart and He’ll do the cleaning up.
