Repentence and the Path You’re On

Posted July 24, 2009

The basic tenant of the Christian faith is that we are all sinners and deserving of death, but God made a way through the death and ressurection of His son Jesus Christ that through Jesus’ sacrifice our sins are paid for and forgiven should we choose to accept the free gift of grace offerred to each and everyone of us.

For every believe in Christ there is a “point of grace”… that moment where each of us individually understand that truly we deserve death. We can not be “good enough” to earh salvation. Redemption comes through the actions of a sovereign, loving, and just God. We are the recipients of His grace.

There’s an interesting thing that happens at that point of grace. Repentence. At that point, our old life is over and the new has begun. A life lived in the peace and grace and love of being a child of God. While grace is the gift freely given and freely received, repentence is the transition state we go through to accept that grace.

Repentance can be defined with a number of nuances, but let’s nutshell it as “to turn from one path to another.”

One of the books I’m reading through right now is Andy Stanley’s new one, The Principle of the Path. The thesis of this book is that each of us are on a path based on the choices we make. Each path has a definitive end to it. You can look forward down that path and see the end result and if you don’t like it, you have to change the path you’re on. Essentially, we have to repent.

Are there areas in your life that you don’t like the path you’re on? In your personal life? In your spiritual life? In your leadership? In your church?

If the answer is yes, my question is simple. What are you going to do about it?
