“Godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.” 2 Corinthians 7:10

There is a sorrow that is called godly, because it is produced in us by the Spirit of God revealing the evil of sin and the plague and corruption of our own hearts, and deeply humbling us under a sense of sin — producing evangelical repentance and leading the soul to cry to the Lord Jesus Christ for pardon and salvation; the Holy Spirit, at the same time, enabling us to believe in Him and to rest upon His person, blood, and righteousness, for redemption and salvation. This repentance will never be repented of.

But sorrow arising from the love of this world works death — death eternal.

Lord Jesus, grant me to feel more of this godly sorrow for sin and to rejoice more in You as my Savior.

Reader, would you realize this godly sorrow for sin? Go to Gethsemane and Calvary — exercise your thoughts on a bleeding, dying Savior, and pray the Holy Spirit to sprinkle His precious blood on your conscience. This will break your heart, cause your tears to flow, and set your whole soul against sin forever.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
