BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

THE QUESTION OF THE MONTH

“Can you be a follower of Jesus, and NOT follow Jesus?  AND, If you’re NOT a follower of Christ, are you a Christian?

 

SORRY-SORRY- SORRY. 

In the wake of numerous public confessions by fallen politicians, sports figures, and business executives, Paul Wilkes references Susan Wise Bauer’s helpful distinction: “An apology is an expression of regret: I am sorry. A confession is an admission of fault: I am sorry because I did wrong. I sinned.” Wilkes goes on: “Apology addresses an audience. Confession implies an inner change...that will be manifested in outward action.”


It’s not enough for a believer to only regret or to simply be sorry for the effects of sin. When our sorrow does not lead to God-centered transformation, it becomes self-pity and unproductive grief, and it leads to death. When a believer exhibits godly sorrow, he accepts the rebuke of God’s Word, realizes that he has transgressed His standard, humbly admits his failure, and turns back to God’s standards and service. 2 Corinthians 7:5-13


It is this kind of sorrow that God wants us to experience. This leads us away from sin and results in salvation, there is truly no regret for that kind of sorrow. But..,on the other hand,  worldly sorrow...results in spiritual death (v.10).
