Repentance

If debating Theology isn't quite your style, but you love God's Word, please use this forum to encourage and be encouraged by sharing scripture, your own devotions and short questions to ponder. This is not a place for debate or argument.

Repentance

Postby RapturedHeart » Fri Jan 01, 2010 12:32 pm

This scripture just 'stuck' with me the other day,

Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. (Matthew 11:21)

It just kind of brings the purpose of 'signs, miracles and wonders' into proper perspective--it's all for the purpose of repentance. Merely experiencing a miracle or healing is not necessarily a sign of salvation--repentance is.

May this new year lead us all into a life of repentance, and may we, like Zaccheus, experience the true joy of giving it all away for God.
