Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/27/17

This week’s scripture is from Luke:

“Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance.” (Luke 3:8 KJV)

We know that God does not look at appearances, but He looks at the heart. He knows if a heart has turned towards Him. The evidence of a heart that has been brought to repentance is a heart that is changed. It is seen in a life that is changed. It is not a perfect life for none is perfect except the Lord, but it is a life that has turned from sin and is seeking God and His righteousness. It is a life that strives to be obedient to God and to follow His ways. It is a life transformed where the old life has passed away and new life has come. Our thinking has changed; the way we act has changed; the way we speak has changed. A repentant heart is not a heart of stone, but a heart of love, a heart turned to the Lord.

May the Lord bless you with a repentant heart.
