II Corinthians 7:10 ” Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.”

Repentance in this Scripture doesn’t specifically refer to our initial act of repentance that accompanied true saving faith in Jesus, but rather an ongoing turning from sin as a Believer. But this type of repentance may be harder to do then that initial Coming to Jesus moment we had at the altar years ago. The longer we’re a Christian the easier it is to quietly tolerate ungodly things in our life. We don’t want to get involved, or rock the boat, so we allow sinful things to accumulate around us. We may regret what’s going on and feel sorry about it…but that’s as far as it goes, with no change in our heart or behavior. But God demands more from us…a sincere decision to forsake this sin and turn back to Him. For our journey with God is one of growth and progress…and Yes, at times filled with profound sorrow for accepting sin into our lives.
