Fear of God Devotional: Why Is the Need for Repentance Sometimes Disregarded?

Why is the need for repentance sometimes disregarded?

Anthony Mathenia explains in this video that many churches in our day ignore the need for reforms primarily because they are more concerned about pleasing people than they are of pleasing God.

We default to self-preservation. Repentance is not always easy. It is much easier to simply do what we have always done. We must be servants of God and do what Scripture requires. 

1 Thessalonians 4:1-2 (NKJV) – “Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God; for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus.”
