Fear of God Devotional: What Is Godly Sorrow?



What does godly sorrow involve?

Don Hart explains in this video that godly sorrow is a grieving heart and mind because we know that we have sinned against God who gave His only begotten Son for us. We realize that we have failed to follow the Savior that came and lived a perfect life, died unjustly, was abused and mocked, and took the wrath of God upon Himself.

When a Christian sins against their Savior, they grieve. They are not grieved because of the consequences or the trouble that they have gotten themselves in. Their heart breaks and their mind aches because they know that they have sinned against God. 

1 Peter 2:24 (NKJV) Christ “Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.”
