Repentance Is the Key

It Is Written, 2 Corinthians 7:10, for Godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.
It is a fact that God sent His only son to die for the sins of the world. He did that because man is expert when it comes to sin. Man has a great imagination and comes up with all sorts of ways to sin, because man cannot keep God's laws.
When Jesus was here, He was here as a man so that He could experience what man had to deal with. He was tempted all the time, but He did not give in.
God knows man is full of sin, even the best of us, when we go by His standards. It doesn't matter how many or how horrible the sins are, He forgives us.
Sin hurts God, because He does not want to see His creation acting that way. What hurts Him more is the lack of repentance. It not only is disrespect to Him, it is condemnation to man. Man cannot have salvation without true repentance from the heart. It deeply sorrows God that even one should perish.
Repentance is more than just being sorry for what you have done. True repentance is a change in the way you look at things, and the things you do. The best way to describe it is, you do a complete turnaround in your life. Repentance, is not frivolous, it defines your relationship to God, and quite possibly where you will spend eternity. Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
Amen
