“In our world, when everything is about promoting yourself, repentance feels brutal. But repentance is the only way to be healed.” - Tim Keller
Imagine Through Repentance
Today’s Scripture: “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you — unless, of course, you fail the test?” - 2 Corinthians 13:5
Today’s Thought: It is difficult to be honest - even with ourselves. Our pride justifies mistakes, minimizes them, or even denies their existence. When we take the same approach to sin, it is spiritually devastating. How can we imagine the beautiful truth God has for us when our lenses are smudged with lies about our spiritual condition? “Examine yourselves...“ Let’s do that today. Let’s honestly examine ourselves, honestly humble ourselves, and honestly ask for mercy.
Today’s Prayer: 0 loving and forgiving God, today I ask you to shine the light of your Holy Spirit on my heart to reveal sin that will affect my relationship with you. Help me, to be honest about my sins and my faults. Give me a broken heart of true repentance and love for you.
