Fear of God Devotional: The Holiness of God Brings Us to Repentance

How does the holiness of God bring us to repentance?

Paul Thompson explains in this video that the source of repentance is the holiness of God. A sinner will not recognize they oppose God, that there is no good to be found in their actions, or that they are an enemy of God if they do not glimpse the holiness of God. You will not be able to see that you need to repent.

The Christian must understand that all of life will be spent in a continual, necessary position of repenting. Even after salvation, there are still other areas they need to repent of. In short, we are on a continual journey of always repenting.

James 5:16 (NKJV) – “Confess your trespasses[a] to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
