"And again, believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you: and now, if you believe all these things see that you do them."
This is interesting to me today... I think that sometimes the disconnect between what we believe and what we do is huge. :) ... we get caught up in doing everyday things and forget to put God first for instance… and I’m sure that we can all come up with pertinent examples from our own lives. :) Anyway, the truth of this scripture goes very deep, down to our core being... we know, without even a little particle of doubt, that repentance is a good thing... even that it is a marvelously merciful thing. But, how often do we really do it, and do it correctly? The humility that it talks about here is so important... recognizing our relationship with our father... as his children, in need of instruction... humbly asking for and following our dad's advice. Today... let's try to lessen the disconnect between what we believe and what we live. Let's humble ourselves before our father... tell him our problems and ask for his help... and when he gives us some advice, let us follow it. :) If we believe all these things, let's work on going out and doing them… putting it all into practice.
