Week 8/Day 3: Confession

Review memory verse. Have you practiced this week’s spiritual discipline?

Read 2 Corinthians 7:9-10

Paul describes two types of sorrow or grief over sin. What are they? And what does each lead to?

Godly sorrow leads to repentance, the turning away from sin to live a new way. This sorrow leads to salvation and leaves no regret.

Worldly sorrow only leaves regret. Primarily the regret of being caught, discovered, found out! This sorrow leads to death. Maybe not literal death, but death of relationships, opportunities, and freedom.

Most of us have experienced both these sorrows at one time or another in our lives. Consider the consequences which resulted. Ask God to move you toward godly sorrow.
