Godly Sorrow Leads Us on to a Glorious Celebration of the Gospel

Godly sorrow for sin does not lead to self-condemnation and attempts to atone for your sins through acts of penance.  Godly sorrow leads to repentance, which leads us to the cross.  There we see, once again, the beautiful sufficiency of our marvelous Savior.  Godly sorrow leads us on to a big party, another glorious celebration of the truth of the gospel.
