The goodness of God
All we like sheep have gone astray… and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
When Jesus died on the cross, he paid the penalty, the price, and the debt for your sin. He took your judgment, your hell, and your death on himself!
This means that Jesus PAID IN FULL the penalty and the price that you could not pay. That is the love of God. That is the remarkable salvation that God has given you and me! God is so good. He is so gracious. God is a good God!
Some have grown up thinking that God is an ogre… that God’s an angry God. But friend, listen to me! It is the goodness of God that leads us to a place of repentance. That word repent means to change. We cannot change ourselves. God changes us from the inside out.
And to repent of our sin means to say, “Oh, God, I’m sorry for my sin! I don’t want to live this way any longer! Lord Jesus, I believe that you can take away my sin and give me a brand new life.” And because of the goodness of God, we are led to repent.
Have you repented of your sins and asked God to change you from the inside out?
IT IS THE GOODNESS OF GOD THAT LEADS US TO A PLACE OF REPENTANCE.
