Think on this…I don’t know what you think about when you hear the word repent. It has been made to sound like an aggressive word that religious people use to make the spiritually unassociated feel bad. That is not the true connotation of the word. It means to make a 180° turn in a better, more beneficial direction. It’s not a bad word, at all.
Here is the truth. No matter how bad you have messed up your life or how wrong you have been, God still loves you. His amazing grace is for you. We often see God as someone who is trying to ruin our fun. That is the furthest thing from the truth. God is the one trying to forgive your wrongs and give you a beautiful future. He loves you enough to say repent so that you can have the best life possible. Who in their right mind would reject that? But people do it everyday. I think that part of the problem is that people like me have not fully explained this word.
Yes, repent and be saved from living below what God has for you. Repent and turn from the things in your life that you know are wrong. Repent and embrace a heavenly Father who loves you. Repent and live the life you were always meant to live. Repentance is a good word for everyone. “Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance?” Romans 2:4…Just a thought
