Things you don’t repent of… but should – #8

I came across a very helpful list in Murray G. Brett’s book “Growing Up In Grace” that is taken from the Church of Scottland’s 1651 “Humble acknowledgement of the sins of the ministry.”  The list struck me as important, VERY important… so I’m going to make a series of posts, each containing 1 or 2 of these things you and I don’t typically repent over, but should.

  1. No change of life after solemn acknowledgements of wrong.
  2. Not learning the fear of God when others fall into sin… not mourning and praying for them.
  3. Neglecting the preparation of my mind and heart for gathered times of worship with God’s people.

Are there any you would add?

  1. Man, these are great. It’s amazing how far we all have yet to go.
    I particularly liked the first one. Sometimes I sin in a particular way, repent, and then do the same thing the next day. But, thank God, over time I’ve changed. Sometimes it just clicks and you really do change your life, your heart, your reactions, and your thoughts.
