Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.
Context: Paul is expressing how the life transformation in the church in Corinth has brought him joy. His first letter caused them grief that led to repentance.
2 Corinthians 7:10 “For Godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.”
- Godly grief (seeking to please God) produces repentance.
- Worldly grief (seeking to please the world) produces death.
Application: “Lord, I want to focus on your response to my life. Before you, I am grieved by my sinful heart. Today I want to consider your response to everything I think, say and do. Thank you for taking care of the penalty and power of sin through Jesus. Your unconditional love compels me to be transformed.”
Is your life motivated by Godly grief or worldly grief?
