Luke 18: Humble Repentance


In Luke 18 we are taught the importance of humble repentance. We are given an example of a Pharisee who is praying a prayer that is exalting his obedience to the law and giving thanks that he is not like other sinners. The other individual praying is a tax collector who has recognized his sin and has come to God in prayer to simply ask for mercy and forgiveness. The prayer of the Pharisee is prideful and receives no response, but the humble prayer of the tax collector receives an answer, he walks away with mercy. Let us approach the throne of grace humbly. Let us dig deep in our hearts and ask God to forgive our sins. If we do, our relationship with God will grow and we will become transformed.

God Bless
