The Unrepentant Repenter – Jim Elliff

The following is the article my pastor referred to in his sermon Wednesday Night.

Do you have a continuous repentant attitude?

Or did you do that already?

The Unrepentant Repenter – Jim Elliff

The believer in Christ is a lifelong repenter. He begins with repentance and continues in repentance. (Rom. 8:12-13) David sinned giant sins but fell without a stone at the mere finger of the prophet because he was a repenter at heart (2 Sam. 12:7-13). Peter denied Christ three times but suffered three times the remorse until he repented with bitter tears (Mt. 26:75). Every Christian is called a repenter, but he must be a repenting repenter. The Bible assumes the repentant nature of all true believers in its instruction on church discipline. A man unwilling to repent at the loving rebuke of the church can be considered nothing more than “a heathen and a tax collector.” (Mt. 18:15-17)

  1. This is so true, the distinguishing mark of a true believer is living a life of continual repentance: true brokenhearted repentance that is, the kind wrought by the Spirit of God.
    Thanks for this post BW!

    Lyn,

    I’m glad you found this link helpful. I’ve enjoyed reading many of Elliff’s articles and bulletin inserts.

    Repentance is not a subject many churches ever even discuss. 🙁
