November 25, 2018: The Art of Repentance

Presented by Casey Kluver (00:38)

Repentance is sometimes misunderstood.  It often gets associated with feeling bad about yourself.  As if God wants you to dwell on the guilt of your mistake.  Repentance includes a sorrow for your sin, but never a self-made magnification of your guilt.  The fullness of repentance is a change of direction with a result of joy.  The goal of the Christian life isn’t to feel worse about yourself – it’s to restore joyful relationship with the God you made you and who wants you.  Repentance leads to restoration.

Scripture references: Luke 15:11-32
