“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death” – 2 Corinthians 7:10

Have you ever done something your regretted? Few of us can say we never have. We all see things in our lives we wish we could undo. Things we have said or done to others or things we have done to ourselves. Our lives are often filled with the regrets of our actions.

In this passage Paul the Apostle speaks to a congregation and comforts them after seeing a willing change of direction – one brought about by true repentance. Initially he had rebuked them for an ungodly course of action, but their sorrow and willingness to clear themselves brings his comfort. Rather than stubbornly reacting to their misdoings they are brought to Godly sorrow in the awareness that they themselves have sinned against God.

When we sin and continue purposely, our lives can feel out of control, chaos reigns and our hearts harden. When heart felt repentance comes (not simply a Greek word meaning turn away) but a Godly sorrow that accompanies such, we are feeling the grieving of the Holy Spirit. God himself grieving with and for us. But this is not a self pity that remains and brings depression. This sorrow brings release and cleansing.

Watch a few of the Video Testimonies on this website. One thing that is glaringly obvious – most of those who felt the touch of God were also brought to a place of Godly sorrow for their sins. But rather than remaining condemned they experience the love and forgiveness that flows after such sorrow- leaving no regret.

Have you felt Godly sorrow? Do you feel you have not really done too much wrong in your life? Self righteousness can often be a trap. We all have done wrong (Romans 3:23). Coming to the point of Godly sorrow and repentance brings an inner peace as we humble ourselves before a loving God; who we all sin against.
