FOR NOT WANTING TO REPENT
Ps. 18:27/Pr. 3:5-8; 6:16-19/Zep. 2:3

For the last time they were asked, "Do you repent?" The fourteen men and one woman remained silent. The Judge's face was tense. These fourteen men and one woman were from Beirut, Lebanon, and the court, convened by the "Fatah Revolutionary Council," accused them of being spies of western countries. All fifteen of these accused prisoners refused to repent of their crime. The Judge therefore lowered the gavel in a condemning verdict, "Execute them."

There is an eternal lesson here. All crimes, every evil deed, all moral infractions receive either tender leniency or harsh judgment. It depends on the attitude of the criminal. Where there is belligerence there will be judgment. Where there is repentance there may be leniency.

Cain killed his brother Abel and suffered, without repentance, to the day of his death. King David, confronted with the double evil act of adultery and murder, so repented that he left his contriteness registered for the whole world to see. "Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God. A broken and contrite heart you will not despise." (Psalm 51:4,9,10 & 17)

Examples are without end. Pharaoh did not repent and he is lost in oblivion. Moses did repent and became God’s lawgiver. Judas did not repent and he died at his own hands. Peter repented and became the first messenger of the Gospel to both Jews and Gentiles.

Wise Solomon had much to say about pride. "There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies, and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers." (Proverbs 6:16-19)

He also spoke of humility: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones." (Proverbs 3:5-8)

A humble spirit, a contrite heart, and a servant's attitude will always receive from God and man forgiveness, compassion, and mercy. Jesus gave us the greatest example. He, the Creator of Heaven and earth, allowed a mere man to baptize Him. Then, in the end, He washed the disciples' feet.
