Are we aware that we need to constantly repent since we tend to not follow God’s way?
We on our own fail to obey God. We do not always have mercy and love for others. To be loving we need to have God present in us. Yet we often block out God and God’s will to instead follow our desires.
So if we tend to turn away from God to sin we must be diligent in repenting. We need to catch the times we are following our own will and stop our sins. We need to understand the offense we have done and ask God for forgiveness. To face God and follow back God’s path.
And God is merciful and forgiving. God wants us to repent and return to God. But it has to be an ongoing process of returning to God since we are inclined to follow our own will. Let us always strive to hold onto God. And realize when we let go of God to return quickly to God’s embrace.
