“The Attitude & Discipline of Repentance”

This week’s Pastor to Person is written by Pastor Daniel Grant.

Repentance is not a once off moment in our lives but a constant attitude that we are to assume. In the Book of Joel we are told about the judgement of God and how important it is that the people of God turn to God and return to God and his ways… Joel 2:13 “Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.”
I adore that Joel reminds us that God is slow to anger. We should ask Holy Spirit to make us gracious, compassionate and slow to anger just like our LORD. We are to be contrite in heart, recognizing our desperate need of God and His grace. In that way we can point people to HIM, the author of life and the source of all goodness! Keep your eyes focused on HIM!!

Sending BIG hugs,

Daniel Grant
