Precious Repentance !!!

And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed. (Ezekiel 20:43)

When we are accepted of the Lord and are standing in the place of favor, and peace, and safety, then we are led to repent of all our failures and miscarriages toward our gracious God.

 So precious is repentance that we may call it a diamond of the first water, and this is sweetly promised to the people of God as one most sanctifying result of salvation.

 He who accepts repentance also gives repentance; and He gives it not out of "the bitter box" but from among those "wafers made with honey" on which He feeds His people.

A sense of blood-bought pardon and of undeserved mercy
 is the best means of dissolving a heart of stone.

Are we feeling hard?
 Let us think of covenant love, and then we shall leave sin, lament sin, and loathe sin; yea,
we shall loathe ourselves for sinning against such infinite love.

 Let us come to God with this promise of penitence and ask Him to help us to remember,
and repent, and regret, and re-turn.
Oh, that we could enjoy the meltings of holy sorrow!
What a relief would a flood of tears be!
Lord, smite the rock, or speak to the rock, and cause the waters to flow!
