Tears of Repentance

There is a certain amount of sorrow involved in repentance that we don’t see much of today. That word means moaning and even groaning. I don’t mean that we have to have a great emotional experience, but I do believe that we need some tears of repentance. We need to be sorry for our sins, and to say, “Oh, God, I have sinned against You, and I’m sorry.” I am not an emotional person. I don’t know why, but I don’t cry easily. But of the few times I have cried in my life, some of them have been over sin that I committed many years ago.

The night I came to Christ, I didn’t have any tears. But later I went home and I looked out my window at the North Carolina sky and I cried over my sins. I said, “Oh, God, forgive me.” And the most wonderful peace swept over my soul. From that moment on, I’ve known that my sins were forgiven.

Prayer for the day

There is sorrow in my soul when I remember how I fail You, loving Lord. Forgive my frailties.

    I’m a sinner; I publicly asked for your forgiveness of all my sins; upon my death have mercy and welcome me into your home; I believe I am worthy of this because Jesus died for me and all. Teach me to walk in your light and resist the enemy. I ask the Holy Spirit reign in me!
