Repentance: it won’t earn us our salvation. If we look at it that way, it’s just another ‘good work’. But it should be the fruit of our salvation! And the great thing is that God always takes the initiative – that’s how much he loves us! God takes the initiative to encourage and seek our repentance.
Our continuing study in the Old Testament prophet Joel shows us that repentance can and should be corporate as well as individual. Based on Joel 2.12-17, you can listen to “Give Your Heart” by clicking here.
