2 Corinthians 7:10

 
For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.
2 Corinthians 7:10

When Paul wrote to the Corinthian church the first time around, he held nothing back in addressing the immorality and ungodly behavior that was running rampant in the church at that time.

By the time 2nd Corinthians was written, Paul was glad to find that his stern warnings originally given were heeded by the people. The result in their hearts was not merely sorrow, but godly sorrow. The kind of sorrow that leads to repentance and change for the better, rather than the hopeless sorrow that leads to despair.

If you find yourself realizing that you have fallen short of the Lord's call for right living and are left feeling deep regret and sadness, don't let it stop there. Turn immediately to the One who offers grace, forgiveness, and a brighter future. Embrace the opportunity to move forward, changed and renewed by the power of His Spirit.
