GOD IS SO GOOD! God’s Goodness Leads To Repentance (2024)


GOD IS SO GOOD! God’s Goodness Leads To Repentance

Romans 2:4

“…Do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and

longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?”

Romans 2:4 has this incredible insight about how amazing God’s goodness is: it provides the opportunity for repentance. In the Old Testament, the threat of judgement didn’t get the children of Israel to repent or obey God. But in the New Testament, He didn’t threaten us with judgements because we’re His obedient ones (1 Peter 1:14). We’re described as having “obeyed” His Word of truth from the heart (Romans 6:17). Thus, He brought us into His goodness and love. Instead of judgement, He shows us His mercy.

God knows that if we would preach and tell the world about His love and goodness, they’d repent and turn to Him. 2 Corinthians 5:18 NIV says, “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” This is the difference. He knows we’ve sinned, but in Christ, He’s not counting our sins against us.

Joel, in his prophecy (Joel 2:10-13), along with Zephaniah, said the people’s sins were being counted against them, and because of that, judgement was coming to them (Zephaniah 1:14-15). But in our day, it’s different. The problem of sin was taken care of through the sacrifice of Jesus in our behalf. As a result of that sacrifice, God reconciled the world to Himself; He brought humanity into peace with Himself. Now He has sent us to take the message of His goodness and love to the world and reconcile people to Him.

GOD IS SO GOOD! God’s Goodness Leads To Repentance (1)

Therefore, make this Christmas count for someone who hasn’t yet known the Lord. You’ll meet them at the mall. They’ll be at that family function you plan to attend. They’ll be at the park or on your way home from church. Let them know God isn’t punishing them for their sins. He already laid the punishment on Jesus Christ in their place, and if they’d only believe, eternal life and righteousness would be imparted to their spirits. Hallelujah!

Romans 1:16-17; Romans 5:6-10; Romans 10:13-15

Pray

Father, I pray that as your children minister the Gospel today around the world, righteousness is poured forth upon the nations, resulting in an avalanche of souls coming into the Kingdom, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Salvation Prayers

If you don’t Know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour and would like to accept him into your life as your personal Lord and Saviour, Please say this prayer:

Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from You. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward You. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that Your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send Your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your Will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
