Repentance without Risk

Table of Contents

There is no such thing as repentance without risk. Repentance without risk is idolatry. The individual who attempts to repent without risk is striving to create a Jesus they will like. Jesus then becomes an idol in their “Christianity”. Like the defendant in a criminal case, they declare themselves “not-guilty” when they are, in fact, guilty of crimes. They do this in the hope that they will be found not-guilty. It is at sentencing; they tell the truth to the world that they are sorry for their sins and crimes. Such sorrow is seldom accepted by the world, but never by a holy God. At some point on the Consider Podcast we will be discussing the idolatry of Saul, but for those who would like to do their spiritual homework ahead of time the full event can be found at, 1 Samuel 15:10-26. Note well that did finally beg for forgiveness, but it was too late — his heart had become hardened to the impurity of self-love.

(1 Samuel 15:23). For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has rejected you as king. Self with its pride, arrogance, excuses, whitewash and impurity must be put to death. To be given the blessing of repentance, the sinner, you, must throw aside all pretense and risk stepping into the light with repentance. Crucifixion with Christ means that you are naked, exposed, helpless, and utterly seen by the world in heaven. Thoughts of self-preservation and dignity (pride), must be hated, rejected, and renounced.

(Acts 3:26) When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.” Want to honestly be blessed and refreshed by the peace of God, then repent with Godly sorrow. Sick and tired of the easy breezy “Christian” clamour about forgiveness, then repent with risk? Worn out attempting to keep the peace in your heart that is always fleeing, then honestly repent before God and man. Desire to have your sins wiped away to be forgiven of all the mistakes sins and crimes committed, then repent.

(Acts 3:19-20) Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you–even Jesus. Those who come to the Lord any other way will be rejected by his salvation and forfeit their priesthood in Jesus. The Consider Podcast, examining today’s wisdom madness and folly. www.consider.info.
