January 16 .... Repentance

January 16


Sadly, far too many of our Christian Churches today are filled with unrepentant sinners because false preachers welcome them in with open arms, but without an open Bible sharing The Gospel message of repentance! The definition of repentance is to turn away from sin and to dedicate oneself to the ministry of serving Jesus Christ! Many Christians struggle with addictions because their Churches use secular 12-step addiction recovery programs that are still teaching that addictions are a disease rather than the sin of drunkenness! The only way to eliminate the sin of drunkenness is to repent of it! To turn from it! Until we do, we can expect to relapse every time we face trials! And there will be many trials as long as we continue to grieve God with our un-repented sinful behavior! 2 Corinthians 12:21  (NIV)  I am afraid that when I come again my God will humble me before you, and I will be grieved over many who have sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual sin and debauchery in which they have indulged.  Revelation 16:11 (NIV)  and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done. God offers us the free gift of Salvation and sobriety, but sobriety without Salvation renders alcoholics and addicts little more than the title of “dry drunks”. Salvation cannot be achieved without repentance! (Acts 3:19)  Genuine, relapse-free addiction recovery begins with repentance and leads to Eternal life with our Savior!
