SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16
Scripture: Matthew 3:1-6
The ministry gift that has the greatest patience with the saints is the pastor. The whole purpose of forbearance is the gaining of true repentance. The repentance that John the Baptist preached simply means ‘a change of mind.’ It comes from the Greek word met-an-oy-eh-o. Met-an-oy-eh-o is the process of changing our mind or turning around, changing and taking another direction, because we assessed that the path we are on leads to damage, destruction or death. True repentance releases life.
