Fear of God Devotional: How Are We Brought to Repentance?



What is the source of repentance?

Carlton McLeod explains in this video that the source of repentance is the grace and mercy of God. Without Him, we are unable to see our sinfulness. If He didn’t show us, we wouldn’t see our sin and understand how exceedingly sinful we are.

God uses many means to show how sinful we are. He uses preachers and other people to convey His Word to people. But ultimately, He alone saves men.  

Ephesians 2:8-9 (NKJV) – “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
