"Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you to repentance?"
This is my favorite verse regarding repentance. It's not an issue I think about a lot, but after a few months' hiatus, the great group of She Says gals recorded a podcast on the subject. Here's the episode.
It came at a great time in my life....I've realized more than ever that I am a mess. Thankfully, God is patient with me and kind when He points out areas where I need to change. He is faithful and good to empower me by the Holy Spirit to make changes and His grace is freely given when I fail (and oh how I fail...I've finally made peace with that fact!)
Isn't God good?
