Repentance is for God's people.
People nowadays no longer:
- fear God
- fear sin
- seek holiness.
We should, if we want God's best and fullness of life. A life of repentance, brokenness and holiness is a 'highway of holiness' over which God moves in the life His people and the watching world.
God, in His holiness, is grieved by our lack of it. Blackaby urges believers to look inward, to see sin from God's perspective, and to live to the standard that He has set in Scripture.
2 Chronicles 7:14: Blackaby notes that the redemption of America lies in the repentance of the people of God. He challenges readers by adding, "If America depended on your prayer life, would there be revival?"
Revival waits on the holiness of His people.
