  • Repent, For the Kingdom of God

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 04, 2009 Category: Articles

    How quick are you to repent? If you're anything like me, you've just this moment added several more things to repent of. First, pride. I suspect that you, if you are like me, think yourself a pretty decent repenter. You likely wish that others would learn from your wonderful example, and do likewise. Indeed, now that I mention it, you can think of several people that owe you an apology, and aren't you the one for being so gracious about it up until now? Keep Reading
