Rock Your World!

repentance, John 1:8-10, genuine repentance
Her email rocked me.

It was so genuine and so rare.

She was doing something God calls us to do. But we rarely do it.

She emailed to tell me that God had been convicting her of several sins, which she stated specifically, clearly, and without excuse.

Then she asked my forgiveness and invited me to let her know if there was anything else she needed to address.

Yes, her email rocked me…blessed me…convicted me… witnessed to me…and made me respect her.

Repentance demands a type of humility foreign to our fallen human nature. Our default mode is to excuse, justify, blame-shift, and overlook sin. 

But genuine repentance rocks not only our world, but the world of those around us.

“if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

Dear Lord, help us rock our world!

  1. This was such a blessing. Convicting because we ought to ask forgiveness more often instead of moving on with our life.

  2. Thank you for your great blog. I know that when God showed my sins to me, I went to pay my debts. Not so much money, but it felt like steal when I don't give it back to my friends. I was 18 :-) What a courageous mail you received. God is really working in our lives.

  3. Oh that cringing word that too often fails to get preached, but is the key to all our growth, hope, power, & healing...."Repentance".
