The Repentant Heart
Pastor Bill Sprague: Conspicuously absent from the church today is the gathering of repentant Christians at the altars of our churches. If Christians expect to see God bring, a Great Awakening, sometimes referred to as a Great Revival, then there must be a return to holiness. A return to holiness will be preceded by a contriteness over the individual's sin and a turning from it. Beginning with James 4:9, this message explains the Biblical foundation and cry for hearts to turn away from sin. James commands us to grieve, mourn and wail over our personal sin and to quit laughing about our sin and finding enjoyment in it. Let our joy be found in obedience to God's commands.
