Heart repentance is so different from surface repentance. It means you’re an integrated Christian resting in grace from first to last, and forming you more and more into a rare kind of person - someone wit humble strength and strong humility.
Repentance and its flip side, faith, are not only the beginning of the Christian life; they are also the engine of Christian growth. As we start our integrated series, we learn the uncomfortable truth about where repentance begins - in the gap between our created destiny and our lived reality. Hear how to grapple with the gap.
Have you ever felt like God is far away? Have you wondered if he remembers you? Have you prayed and wondered if anyone hears you? In psalms 42 & 43 we have a prayer of longing for God’s presence. It’s a song to sing in the darkness; it’s a song that we all need to sing in some seasons of our lives. How does this song help us to connect with God through dark times — to find what we so desperately need to survive — and even to grow more deeply connected to him through them?
