Repentance is God’s Gift | 4 August 2021

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Repentance isn’t always easy, but it is a principle of joy. We shouldn’t avoid it, but embrace repentance as a gift from God.

Scripture

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.2 Peter 3:9

Quote

Repentance is a divine gift, and there should be a smile on our faces when we speak of it. It points us to freedom, confidence, and peace.D. Todd Christofferson
