Fear of God Devotional: Repentance That Grows Humility



What does an unrepentant life look like?

Anthony Mathenia explains in this video that when someone lives an unrepentant life,  their life will be marked by immense selfishness. An unrepentant person is a person who takes advantage of and uses others in their life to promote themselves and please themselves. 

Conversely, a repentant person strives to live a life of humility and service towards others. Repentant people look to the example that Christ set for us. The second chapter of Phillippians states: “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” There is no greater example of humility and love than the example that Jesus Christ gave us. 

Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV) – “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”
