HAVING REGRETS

Godly Regret

 

2 Corinthians 7:10

 

For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.

 

 

LESSON

 

The apostle then added a somewhat philosophical reflection on two possible responses to criticism and their consequences. The proper response, God’s will, results in a change of mind, which leads to deliverance from the bad situation, without” later “regret. The improper response, the world’s typical superficial response, does not result in a change of mind, but leads to resentment and bitterness “death” in the temporal sense. Suffering in itself does not necessarily benefit us. It proves to be a good thing for us only as we respond to it properly.

What is repentance and how does it fit in God’s plan of salvation? Repentance is not just a single act, but a lifestyle choice. This lifestyle is one of fulfillment and joy. God wants people who are truly repentant. Who truly want to turn from wicked ways. Only then, will God move on our behalf.
