Repent

Introducing my blog mascot alive and kicking!

Mascot

True to life! Revealing my blog mascot to lighten up the heavy message of the Gospel today.

Today’s 2nd Sunday of Advent is a big challenge for everyone.

Here is my A Dose of Ramedy today:

Repent sincerely.

The Gospel message calls us to confront and confess our sins; to turn away from them in sincere repentance; to receive God’s forgiveness; and most importantly, to look to Jesus.

Do we need to receive God’s forgiveness? There are basically two reasons why we fail to receive forgiveness. The first is that we fail to repent, and the second is that we fail to forgive.

Let us not allow what others have done destroy our life. We can’t be forgiven unless we forgive.

Let us let go of that bitterness and allow God to work healing in our life. Perhaps we need to draw closer to Him.

Like the prodigal son’s father, God will run to meet us. He will throw His arms around us and He will forgive us and restore us. He will receive us as His sons and daughters.

Let us draw close to Him today, and He will draw close to us.

We are invited by the Church to prepare for Christmas by repenting of our sins and renewing our lives so that Jesus may be reborn in us. Let us ask with Alexander Pope the challenging question, “What do I profit, if Jesus is born in thousands of cribs all over the world unless he is born in my heart and in my life?”
