2 Corinthians 7:10 "Godly sorrow produces repentance that leads to salvation without regret."
Many people live with regrets for past failures. They can never seem to break loose completely from the chains of those past failures. I have sometimes struggled with feelings of regret.
But regret alone redeems nothing.
Repentance is the necessary step to redemption and restoration. Past failures remind us of our need of God's grace; but to dwell on those failures leads to bondage, hopelessness, and paralysis. Forgiveness in Christ who bore our sins on the cross sets us free to pursue His will for us today and unto eternity. In that pursuit, there is great joy--and no regrets!
