Word of the Day... November 3, 2012

Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? Romans 2:4

Everything that God does in our lives is designed to bring us to repentance.  Our only hope is that we turn around and change directions from the natural bent of our flesh.
People often mistake God’s forbearance and longsuffering for tolerance or indifference.  Because of God’s patience and love, they get the idea that He doesn’t care about their sin. But the purpose of His goodness is to turn us around.  God loves you more than you could ever realize; and in spite of what you are doing, He patiently allows you the time and the space to repent.
However, there will come a day, make no mistake about this, when God will judge.  If we respond to His goodness by repenting of our sins, the Day of Judgment will be a time of rewards and celebration. But if we ignore His goodness and refuse to repent, we will face the wrath of God.  God bless you!!! :):)
