If a person does not change, God sharpens his sword. By bending his bow, he makes it ready to shoot . He prepares his deadly weapons and turns them into flaming arrows.
Ps 7:12-13

It's curious in the light of the crucifixion, how some view repentance as trivial.

In this culture of drive-by fast food and easy credit, salvation has been redefined from a costly, life-changing hill-n-valley journey to one where we sit and wait for pie in the sky bye and bye. Job was a righteous man who knew something about cost, yet what he paid is not worthy to be compared with that of the Lord Jesus. Still, after losing his house, children and possessions, he said, "Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?" The free salvation Jesus purchased for you and me came at an extreme cost, so why is it that we tend to cheapen it by making it easy?
