That is the wrong type of repentance. We all face that pull though, do we not? Things that we thought we have overcome, creep back into our lives. Victories we won through prayer and spiritual discipline, we seem to be fighting again. Someone once told me that the things we struggled with in our 20’s and overcame we will face again in our 50’s and 60’s but bigger battles. I find that has been true.
I have found that I need someone to encourage me. Not hold me accountable, encourage me. Not blow me up when I fail but stand with me in the midst of the battle. I think that is the whole idea behind Hebrews 3:13, don’t you.
