Refusing – Revelation 2:21

I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality.

Danger and death lie in a refusal to repent and change. It is when we rebelliously refuse to turn away from the sinful nature and the satisfaction of it and turn toward Father God and His re-creation of our fallen nature that we are left to our own choice of condemnation. In refusal there is condemnation. Father God will not force Himself on anyone. He is committed to giving us the self dignity of choosing Him. He allows us to choose. True love requires free will. He loves us enough to allow us to turn from our sin to Him. Eternal security and true life lie in a life of repentance. Turn and live.
