How many times have we heard or said that? A hurt occurs, sorrow is felt, and promises to change are made...but we don’t. What’s up with that?
Maybe it’s because we think sorrow and confession are enough to make the changes needed. In the Scripture, the process is called repentance...and that involves much more than saying you are sorry. True repentance involves change; it is a turning from sin and turning to God.
The end result of true repentance is glorious...it is a revived life in Christ knowing that His ways are the best ways and no treasure tops His righteousness ruling in us.
Be sure to listen to the posted audio of this sermon and learn the “Six Signs of True Repentance”.
(2 Corinthians 7:9-10a, Isaiah 44:22, Philippians 2:13, Romans 12:5, 10)

Great encouraging "in your face" teaching on repentance! My favorite kind, I love the straight up approach, no beating around the bush. I love how no matter how many times we read the Bible, study God's Word, or listen to preaching and teaching, we can always come away with a very relevant NOW fresh loaf of bread from Heaven! We would literally starve without it! I also wanted to say that I was very blessed by the testimony segment. Not sure how old the news is but God's blessings retold always bring new glory to Him! I would like to hear more of your "Piercing the Darkness" that Shirley spoke of on the audio. I will look around your website for info on that. Hope you don't mind my commenting everytime I listen to a sermon! I am an encourager, besides that the Bible tells us to tell of His wonderous works, and make known His deeds among the people!!! So I am just making known that God is blessing me thru this ministry! Thanks and God bless y'all!

Patsy-Your comments are cherished! Piercing the Darkness (PDM) is our outreach ministry...one book published some time ago (still on Amazon.com) as well as a few copies here "The Climb" by Linda Pugsley; the website and all its teachings; an increase in the guest speaking I am doing at local churches, some prison ministry may be starting etc. Lots of work in this part of His vineyard and we seek the Lord for His people's prayerful and financial support. What an awesome time to serve our great and marvelous Lord. To Him be all the glory! Oh yes, we will have the PDM description and info on the website soon. God bless.
