The Kindness of God Leads!

Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? Romans 2:4

As I was seeking God out today about what He wanted me to know this scripture was the one that grabbed me. 

Why is it that most sermons and teachings we hear are centered around us making a decision to change?  

What scripture seems to state emphatically is that change does not come through determination or effort.  We are dysfunctional and will lose those battles continually.

Truly knowing the richness of God's mercy and His unfathomable love for each of us is what "leads us" to change.  Nothing else will ever work!  

Fall in love with Jesus!  Allow Him to show You His great love for you and that love will create a hunger and thirst for righteousness that will dissolve your conflicting desires!  There is simply no other way to freedom!

Cease striving and know I am God! Psalm 46:10

He will change what you can't!
