Repent and convert
July 23, 2020
“Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise.” Revelation 3:14-22
“…unless you repent, you too will all perish.” Luke 13:1-5
Punishments in families and in society such as time-outs and arrests can change bad behavior to good behavior to keep the moral order.
Similarly, God chastises, or punishes, us who sin and serve other gods or idols, which are things that are more important to us than God, for example: ourselves, others, activities, beliefs, things, sins, etc. 1st Commandment: “I am the LORD thy God,…You shall not have strange gods before me…” (Exodus 20:2-3).
