DAY 156 - We Need Godly Sorrow

Today’s Reading: 2 Corinthians 7

Please read 2 Corinthians 7: 1 – 16 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf . (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to 2 Corinthians 7:


Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7: 10

Paul knew that his letter to the Corinthians caused sorrow, for no one wanted to listen to someone telling them that they were wrong. He hoped that the sorrow his letter caused could bring repentance. Godly sorrow brings repentance but worldly sorrow brings hatred, bitterness and death.

Jesus led me to think of those times that I could not catch the opportunity to do the thing as Paul did, which is to bring Godly sorrow to some people so as to lead them to repentance. Oh, we need Godly sorrow which brings repentance that leads to salvation.

How do we know that we have Godly sorrow? By the fruits! And those are the earnestness and eagerness to clear ourselves and to bring encouragement and refreshment. How much godly sorrow do people have over their pride, discouragement and bitterness?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to receive Godly sorrow that I can be more like you, and so that I can bring encouragement and refreshment to others. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Many wonderful things have happened in the past 100 days. Can we follow our King, our Shepherd, our Lord Jesus Christ to use an hour’s time to pray for His protection and blessings to my new ministry as the Bishop of ACiC/AI, all our ACiC/AI clergy, leaders and people? Pray that in the Holy and Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord, we can win over Satan's tricks, in order to strengthen our brothers and sisters so that His Kingdom will be extended.
