True North Travel Tip #6
“Romans 2 (NIV) 4 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?”
In this passage Paul is addressing judging of others and how when we judge we show contempt for the Grace God has given us. Do you realize the greatness of the riches of God’s glory that has been poured out on those who believe. God’s kindness has taken every sin we have ever done or thought of and has cast them away as if they never existed. His forbearance takes the sins we commit daily, even though we know we should not do them, and covers them with the blood of Christ so that daily we can stand righteous before him. His patience is his love for us knowing that we will continue to sin in the future as long as we inhabit these fallen and sinful bodies, and yet he has prepared a place for us eternally in his presence. Through Christ we are able to stand righteous before God. Don’t diminish the great gift God has given you by condemning for the same things you are guilty of. We all need his Grace and a repentant heart.
God is GOOD!!!
