Beau's Sunday Sermon -- Repentance

"So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the LORD your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm." (Joel 2:13 NKJV) God forgives our sins if we truly repent. God wants our repentance to come from within and come from the heart, and not just be an outward, showy act. If we were to just "rend our garments" it would be a vain, and in vain, act. To be truly repentful one must take that rending to the core of one's being and THEN truly show outward signs of repentance. If we do that God is just and kind and will forgive our sins. And, He will show us grace and mercy! Praise God!! Love, Beau
