Daily Nugget

Saturday, July 16th, 2011.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

"Man is born with his face turned away from God. When he truly repents, he is turned right round toward God; he leaves his old life."
(Dwight Lyman Moody 1837–1899)

To truly repent means to turn around, to stop the way we are going and turn 180 degrees back to God. Because our nature wants to recoil from the pain of getting "caught," too many times we turn toward God just enough to quit hurting inside. It has to be more than turning over a new leaf; it must be a complete turning that results in a new relationship with God. Jesus tells us in John 3:7:
“Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”

"God, thank You for Your unconditional acceptance of us as we turn to You.

Bro. Bill

God is Good...all the time
