"Godly Sorrow vs Worldly Sorrow"


“Godly Sorrow vs Worldly Sorrow”


Godly Sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.     2 Corinthians 7:10


For the ones who have experienced GODLY SORROW, they KNOW the differences between GODLY SORROW and WORLDLY SORROW.  Whenever, God deals with a person, through the work of His HOLY SPIRIT, that person will fill SORRY for their UNGODLY BEHAVIOR, and their DISOBEDIENCE toward the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD. And this SORROW may lead to REPENTANCE, and it produces in that person, a serious, sincere desire to make amends for their sins.  It also produces eagerness to justify themselves, and indignation against the things that are UNJUST, OFFENSIVE, INSULTING, or UNGODLY.  They are alarmed at their own DISOBEDIENCE towards God, and they have a READINESS to see justice done, and therefore, they are eager to prove themselves INNOCENT of such behavior.  This is GODLY SORROW, and with it comes SALVATION, with NO REGRETS.  It brings to the REPENTANT person a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the ALMIGHTY GOD and His ONLY SON, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, which leads them to an ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS. 


However, WORLDLY SORROW, brings a SPIRITUAL DEATH, to those who are DISOBEDIENT to GOD.  Those who have chosen a SINFUL LIFESTYLE and who continues to REJECT God’s Gift of SALVATION, through His Son, Jesus Christ. The ones, who have DECIDED to LIVE in DARKNESS, will experience WORLDLY SORROW, which produces: heartache, confusion, despair, envy, pride, and disobedience, the SORROW leads to a SPIRITUAL DEATH, which means there is NO RELATIONSHIP with the ALMIGHTY GOD, and they have sealed their own DESTINY to an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, once they are there.  It will be too late then, to try to experience a GODLY SORROW.  NOW is the TIME to TURN AWAY FROM your SINFUL life-style, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His GIFT of SALVATION, with GODLY SORROW, and experience His ETERNAL INHERITANCE in HEAVEN, provided by His Son, the LORD JESUS CHRIST.   Do this NOW, while you still can.   He’s WAITING and COMING SOON!!!
