Psalm 51:1-2 ” Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your unfailing love; according to Your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.”

Mercy, kindness, and love are central to God’s character and what makes repentance possible for us. But we must have the desire for repentance…for forgiveness, purification, and restoration – and it all starts with confession. But admitting we’re wrong is hard, and admitting our rebellion, alienation, and disobedience to God isn’t easy. But as Romans 2:4 reminds us, it’s God’s kindness, tolerance, and patience that leads us toward repentance and makes the way possible.
