What is Godly Sorrow?

spiritual battleThe phrase “godly sorrow” appears only once in Scripture, in 2 Corinthians 7:10-11: “Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see justice done.” Godly sorrow, also translated “godly grief,” is an acute sense of sadness we experience as a result of the sins we have committed.

Paul’s reference to godly sorrow in 2 Corinthians 7 was brought about by the reaction of the Corinthian believers to a previous letter in which Paul rebuked them for the dissentions that were present in the church. Although he was sorry to have to hurt them, he rejoiced that his letter brought them to godly sorrow “as God intended.” Godly sorrow is that which brings the repentance that leads to salvation (2 Corinthians 7:8-9).

What things in this world have a true eternal value?What things in this world have a true eternal value? - It goes without saying that the only things of eternal value in this world are those that are eternal. Life in this world is temporal, not eternal, and therefore, the only part of life that has eternal value is that which lasts through eternity. Clearly, the most important thing in this world that has true eternal value is having a relationship with Jesus Christ, as the free gift of eternal life comes only through Him to all those who believe (John 3:16). As Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Everyone is going to live somewhere for all of eternity, Christians and non-Christians alike. And the only eternal destiny other than the one in heaven with Christ is one that provides everlasting punishment for those who reject Him (Matthew 25:46).

November 8, 1920 - Saturday, March 8, 2014

Those who knew Percy knew how much he adored spending quality time with family and friends. He and Gertrude particularly enjoyed the homecoming parties given in honor of returning home from their travels. Percy is now able to rest with our Lord and Saviour, where he can reunite with the love of his life. He will be missed by all who loved him, but never forgotten.

 

Bible Study
Bible Reading Tips - What Is The Most Forgotten Bible Reading Method? (Start Doing This Today)Bible Reading Tips - What Is The Most Forgotten Bible Reading Method? (Start Doing This Today) - My friend, when was the last time you read one of Paul’s letters in its entirety, in one sitting? Have you ever read any book of the Bible in its entirety, in one sitting? When Paul wrote his letters, they were written with the intention of being read in their entirety, in one sitting. So when we read Paul’s letters, shouldn’t we read them in the way they were intended to be read? If you’ve never done this before, I encourage you to try it today.

Most cases that occur with chickenpox are in children ages 5 - 9. Cases that occur with the flu are usually in children ages 10 - 14.
