Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni confesses his nation’s sins. Read it here.

If America has a hope it will only come about by her people and leaders repenting of our sins. Will we? Will I? Will you? Yes, you.

God’s kindness leads to repentance

Posted by Gary on January 26, 2011

Romans 2:4 “Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?”

Luke 5:4-10 “When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.” Simon answered and said, “Master, we worked hard all night and caught nothing, but I will do as You say and let down the nets.” When they had done this, they enclosed a great quantity of fish, and their nets began to break; so they signaled to their partners in the other boat for them to come and help them. And they came and filled both of the boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw that, he fell down at Jesus’ feet, saying, “Go away from me Lord, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!” For amazement had seized him and all his companions because of the catch of fish which they had taken; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not fear, from now on you will be catching men.”

imageWhile it is true that God causes all those who come to know Him to fear Him, it is also true that it is equally the kindness of God that brings us to repentance.

As we see Peter coming to repentance and faith in the midst of this fishing trip, what is it that leads him to acknowledge his sinfulness? Not bolts of lighting, but two boats full of fish.
