Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? Romans 2:4 NLT
For many who believe in Jesus the Christ, they still have emotions of being condemned or guilt and shame. They feel God is disappointed, sometimes angry or accusing them along their journey through life. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant and patient God is with you? Not only are we free from the penalty of sin, but we are free from being condemned in it, as far as God is concerned. Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? It is his gentle voice of kindness (that is his grace) that brings us to an awakening that our emotions need to be renewed so that we can enjoy that life that is eternal. His kindness says, instead of feeling condemned, come let us repent with joy! When awakened by his kindness repentance becomes an act of worship with joy, without feelings of guilt, shame or regret. Today rejoice in who you are because of the grace and kindness of our Lord. This is a good day to turn from your sin, then, sing and make a joyful shout unto the Lord. You will enjoy every moment of it! His kindness is new every morning. Enjoy!
