Let us be thankful for God’s gift of Gospel repentance. He alone has opened our eyes to our darkness, sin and shame. He alone has changed our minds concerning Christ, causing each of us to look to Christ alone for all righteousness. It is the Lord alone that has, in the words of Paul, “given us understanding.” And it is through eyes made new by Gospel repentance that we endeavor to be kind and gentle toward one another as we, ever sorrowful for our sin, trust Christ alone to go our way until the brightness and glory of His coming.
Dead religion will not save you! Do you think that mere ritualistic actions are sufficient to propitiate the wrath of God concerning you?

If so, it is the Lord of Hosts who has visited with you in the working of the Holy Spirit, regenerating you unto life so that you, by His power, can rest in the perfection of another, Jesus Christ, apart from the dead rituals and sin-cursed works of sinful hands. Truly, this is the work of God, ‘to believe on the One whom He has sent!’ Only he can MAKE us willing!

The Lord’s people, the weakling outcasts of this world, will surely rule and reign with Him one day. They will “trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever,” boasting not in evil works but in God through Christ (Romans 5:11).
