WITHOUT SHAME WE DO NOT REPENT — PART 3

REPENT! TURN AWAY FROM SIN.

REPENT! TURN AWAY FROM SIN.

Thus far, we have seen two posts in this series

  • PART 1 considered three videos. Each gave an example of shameless behavior, behavior which should shame any Christian.
  • PART 2 considered the importance of education in transmitting religious values. Unfortunately, we live in a society which more and more values freedom from religion.

What will we consider in PART 3? Today (was when I started writing   🙂     ) is Good Friday. Today we commemorate the willingness of Christ Jesus to suffer and die in payment for our sins. So that we may righteously celebrate on Easter, today we repent in shame.

Today we also recall to mind that God is Light.

1 John 1:5-10 English Standard Version (ESV)

Walking in the Light
This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Biltrix has been observing Holy Week the way Catholics observe Holy Week. Step-by-step they follow Christ Jesus to the cross. Today saw posted The Sixth Word, “It Is Finished.”

Jesus now knows that he is going. Once again, looking up to heaven, he cries out: “It is finished!” The cup of suffering is drained; his redemptive work is complete.

In Easter Week Devotion: The Importance of the Resurrection, Settled In Heaven leaps ahead from the horror of the crucifixion to Easter. Is it wrong to do so? No. When Barkman explains 1 Cor 15:12-23 (KJV), he speaks of the significance of the resurrection, and he reminds us that Christ Jesus died on a cross, was buried, and rose from the dead to save us from our sins.

With Good Friday— A Day of Necessity, The Christian Gazette returns to the cross.

Without the Crucifixion there could have been no resurrection.

And at Gracie’s Quest, we return once again to the celebration.  In Live by the Spirit…, Gracie comments on Romans 8:1-11 which begins thus:

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.

Whether we speak of the cross or the empty tomb, the Bible makes the nature of our salvation and our freedom clear. To pay for our sins, Christ Jesus suffered and died. To accept His sacrifice, we begin by repenting of our sins.
