We see in Luke 3 that repentance is the appropriate response to God’s revelation. It may take a hard word for us to see the need and name what is keeping us from being fully surrendered to God. Thankfully, God doesn’t pull any punches. Through the words of John the Baptist and the actions of Jesus, we can be crystal clear on what to do.
“True repentance never leads to despair. It leads home. It leads to grace.” -John Ortberg
Confess your clutter. Name it. Put it before the throne of God.
Give thanks for God’s grace that comes through repentance.
