Kanaan Message for Today
Do you think that you are abandoned to the misery you have brought upon yourself by your sinning? If that were so, God would no longer be alive — God, who out of love gave His Son as an atoning sacrifice for sin, so that we might be saved. He provides a way out of all such distress: repentance. Repentance can even turn our sin into gain. God in His goodness gives penitent sinners many additional gifts: thanksgiving for His forgiveness; love for our Saviour Jesus; humility; hatred of sin; faith in the blood of Jesus, which cleanses from all unrighteousness. Who can comprehend God’s merciful love towards sinners? So let us walk in the way of repentance.
