Topic: REPENTANCE IS THE KEY TO GOD’S ACCEPTANCE

Bible Reading: 1 John 3:20-22

📖20….”For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
📖21….Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
📖22….And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”

Message:

🔥Self condemnation and self justification are the duties of our inner sense of reasoning called conscience. Repentance is therefore built on the disposition of our conscience. Whoever operates with a good conscience, tends to repentance when convicted. When Miriam and Aaron accused Moses of marrying a strange woman from Ethiopia, and Aaron’s conscience condemned him for accusing Moses after God spoke to them, he repented, but Miriam refused to repent because she was the instigator of the rebellion; and so, was afflicted with leprosy for seven days…Num 12:1-15

🔥🔥Whatever your conscience condemns you over, you have to come out of it through repentance. Being stubborn and disobedient against the voice of conscience, leaves one in pains. Our text from 1 John 3:20-22, suggests that we should obey our heart condemnation, to avoid God’s punishment. If the condemnation by our conscience inflicts pains in us, how much more will God’s condemnation afflict us? If our little heart calls us to order (condemns us), how condemned by God are we? Note that God knows the bigger picture of the magnitude of our wrongs and sins.

🔥🔥🔥Even though many takes self-condemnation as humility and a behaviour that makes God to forgive and reward in the faith, it is only true repentance that attracts God. Observe that Esau could not use crying to recover his blessings from Jacob in Hebrews 12:16-17, because he found no place for repentance. Beloveth, to be happy in the faith, one must repent from his wrong deeds, to avoid self-condemnation by your own conscience… Romans 14:22.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Heavenly father, teach my heart never to accuse people falsely in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏O Lord, subdue every form of disobedience from me towards you, that may deny me access into your forgiveness and compassion in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Thank you father, for accepting me back into the Church, each time I repent of my sins, in Jesus’ name.
