Thank you for returning this afternoon my friends, when we will review with a 'few words' on - TRUE REPENTANCE, FOR SUCH TIMES AS THESE. WE ALL HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE TIME TO PULL ASIDE AND, TO CONSIDER THESE THINGS. Amen. Amen.
It may sound strange, but how do we go about getting a broken heart? Let us in 'such times as this', first, simply ask for it. True repentance, like all good things, is a gift of God (2 Timothy 2:25). If we want to obey the command to rend our hearts, we must ask God to grant us true repentance. [Continuing from our morning devotions.] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
ARE WE 'WEEPING' OVER THE RIGHT THING - OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LIVING GOD?
But more. We must also be aware of one of the biggest hindrances to obtaining a broken heart: our neglect of the relational aspect of sinning. By this, I mean that we can view sin as a failure of performance rather than a failure of intimacy. The only grief we experience is disappointment in our inability to do what is right, and not that we have “despised” the living God (2 Samuel 12:9). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
However, throughout Holy Bible Scripture, we learn that when we sin, we play the part of an 'adulterer' who looks for satisfaction in another, rather than the only One who can satisfy. That is why David said to the Lord, “against you, you only, have I sinned” (Psalm 51:4). David rightly saw his failures in terms of relationship, and as a result his heart was grieved as it can be only when we have sinned against the One we love so much. THIS IS - A GAME CHANGER!!audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Ultimately then, true repentance comes not merely by understanding the relational aspect of sin, but by understanding the nature of the One with whom we are in relationship.
In other words, the more we see God as glorious and holy, the more we will see sin as something to weep over. Repentance is less about feeling bad over behavior, and more about feeling awe and delight towards God.
Therefore, the more glimpses we have of the glory of God, the more we mourn for scorning that glory.
In the end, my friends, God’s plan for us is that we will be holy as he is holy (1 Peter 1:16). He will surely do it!
In the meantime, he desires a brokenhearted people who have learned to mourn over their sin. For as it is written, Psalm 51:17-19 King James Version (KJV)audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.' Amen. Amen.
LET THIS BE OUR URGENT 'PURSUIT' AS WE 'EXAMINE OUSELVES'; IN 'SUCH TIMES AS THESE.
[Esther 4:13-14; 2 Corinthians 13:5 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html ] Amen. Amen.
