The Gospel By Paul Washer

Monday, May 12, 2008


Consider how hateful your ways are to God, while you continue in sin; how abominable you are unto Him, while you run into evil. You cannot be said to be Christians while you are hating Christ, and His people; true repentance will entirely change you, the bias of your souls will be changed, then you will delight in God, In Christ, in His Law, and in His people. You will then believe that there is such a thing as inward feeling, though now you may esteem it madness and enthusiasm. You will not then be ashamed of becoming fools for Christ's sake; you will not regard being scoffed at; it is not then their pointing after you and crying, "Here comes another troop of His followers," will dismay you. No, your soul will abhor such proceedings, the ways of Christ and His people will be your whole delight.
Whitefield's Sermons(Grand Rapids, MI: Christian Classics Ethereal Library). Sermon: A Penitent Heart, the Best New Year's Gift."

How often is there preaching on repentance today in the pulpit? Today most preaching is on what God can do for you and how He has a wonderful plan for your life. John the Baptist preached Repentance, Jesus preached Repentance, but the modern church knows a better way to reach the culture today. Oh that we would return to the Old Paths and walk in them. The American church needs to repent of all its man centered ways and cry out to God for foregivness.
