Nibble of Bread : Sorrow and Salvation

November 17, 2012

2 Corinthians 7:10

10 For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.

Hurricanes, floods, storms, earthquakes and tsunami’s have all been very common things in the news lately. Why? Only God knows exactly why. Although, this verse gives me a little glimpse of some reasoning or an angle on why these things happen. In all honesty when these bad things are coming towards us, or when I hear of things like this in the news I get happy. I get happy because of what this verse says. I never rejoice at others sorrow, misfortune, trouble or pain. I do rejoice when people turn their lives over to Christ. No earthly possession is more important than Christ. No earthly suffering is worth avoiding at the cost of avoiding Christ.

In order to get my attention during certain activities it may take anything from a shout, to a slap in the face. Many of us need that with Jesus. Maybe He has been quietly calling you, nudging you and asking you with subtle references to turn from your sin and live for Him. Well get ready, God wants all men to be saved and know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. So if you don’t listen and sorrow does come your way (because we all face it throughout this life many times over) don’t reject it where spiritual death will occur. Rather, embrace it and allow the God who Saves to lead you into redemption!
