Repentance Not Despair, Μετάνοια και όχι παραίτηση




Listen to our Greek Program…

Repentance Not Despair

The parable of the Prodigal Son offers a great opportunity for us to consider the benefits of true repentance. Still knowing that God is Love, we don’t need to feel guilty and despair but we should focus on our battle against our passions. We have the greatest ally in Jesus next to us.

Μετάνοια και όχι παραίτηση

Η παραβολή του Ασώτου μας προσφέρει την ευκαιρία να αναλογιστούμε πάνω στα ωφέλη της μετάνοιας που προέρχεται απο τα βάθη της καρδιάς μας, ξέροντας ωστόσο οτι απευθύνεται στον Θεό του οποίου η ουσία είναι η αγάπη. Οπότε δεν ταιριάζει στους χριστιανούς να απελπίζονται όταν αμαρτάνουν αλλά να μετανοούν αληθινά και να συνεχίζουν τον αγώνα τους.
