The Shortcut To Repentance (2 Corinthians 7:1-10)Tommy Boring, June 22, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
We can say we are sorry to each other but no really mean it. God knows if our repentance is true. The only thing that can comfort one in sorrow is repentance, God. There is no greater joy than to hear that someone has repented. How does God tell one that they need to repent? God can speak to one through the preacher. The preacher doesn't know any more than the next person. God can not overlook sin. God can use circumstances to speak to ones heart to repent. God knows how to open our hearts. God can also use someone else to speak to us about repentance. If God tells you to speak to someone about a dangerous lifestyle/sin, please speak with them. Love them enough to help them and not worry about what the devil will threaten you with. What are you trying to hide from God? What is it in your heart that God is dealing with you about?

2 Corinthians 7:1-10
1Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man. 3I speak not this to condemn you: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts to die and live with you. 4Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation. 5For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears. 6Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus; 7And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more. 8For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season. 9Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. 10For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. (KJV)
