The Life’s Journey Children’s Pastor, Sherry Benner shared an important reminder that building our life on the Rock-the Word of God- is more than a children’s song. This principle in firmly rooted in Scripture in Matthew 7. She continues encouraging and exhorting us to remember and declare who God says we are.
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.
