Great Sunday!! Hope you all are doing well today. Lets finish this one up so we can move on to another subject.
From Beth Moore’s study on Daniel, let’s continue to break down 1 Corinthians 7:10:
“First, the regret to which this verse refers is most pointedly the regret of unrepentance. In other words, if we repent, we won’t regret that we didn’t repent. Nor will we regret the deliverance. Hear the tone in the King James version, “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”
“Secondly, I realized that my debilitating regret was characteristic of worldly sorrow, not godly sorrow. Read the Amplified version of 2 Corinthians 7:10 again.
“For godly grief and the pain God is permitted to direct, produce a repentance that leads and contributes to salvation and deliverance from evil, and it never brings regret; but worldly grief (the hopeless sorrow that is characteristic of the pagan world) is deadly (breeding and ending in death). 1 Corinthians 7:10.”
“Do you see “worldly grief” defined as hopeless sorrow? God redeems something by buying it back through the payment of a ransom. He gave the life of his son as the ransom to buy us back from the clutches of sin. He also bought back the rights to our past and all its failures. If we cooperate, he’ll turn every single one of those failures into something useful for his kingdom. To me that’s the meaning of “full redemption” in Psalm 130:7.”
“Put your name in the blank where Israel was in that verse.”
“O ___________, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.”
“If you’ve nursed hopeless grief over your past, put your hope in the Lord! He loves you unfailingly! He wants to redeem every part of your life until even your failures bring him glory.
“Will you let him?”
Friend, will you let him redeem every part of your life?
Father thank you that you love us that much that you want to even when we have messed up. Help us to break the chains that bind. Help us to claim all your promises today and put our complete trust and faith in you. in Jesus name I pray, amen.
