The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
Years ago comedian Red Skelton was on an airplane that develop engine trouble over the Alps. He tried to cheer people with jokes. Finally, the aircraft was nursed to an emergency landing. “Now you can all go back to the sin you turned from a few minutes ago,” Skelton reportedly quipped to his fellow passengers. Shallow “repentance” is really regret, especially over possible consequences. Godly repentance is, as they say in the military, an “about face,” a turn away from sin to God. It comes when our hearts are broken over our sin rather than merely anxious about the outcome.

OUR THANK YOU TO YOU
Thank You For Your Gift:
Often, we don't know what to say when we get in the presence of God. The Apostles saw that when Jesus prayed, power came into life — a light, a power, and a relevance that was supernatural. They understood that to tap into this power, they would need to learn to pray as Jesus prayed. Join Dr. Ed Young as he shares practical lessons from the Lord's Prayer and discover the power through prayer that can be yours today.
