Decisive Commitment – Sharing from Kelly Kang

February 5, 2010

A lot of us went to the winter retreat two weeks ago and since those thoughts are still fresh on your minds we wanted to recommend a post on Kelly Kang’s blog.  Check out the excerpt below:

From Decisive Commitment: “I think it’s hard for people who are in fear to take responsibility for their sins.  Somehow, it’s hard to feel that you did wrong since after all, you were just afraid.

  • “I lied because I was afraid that you would yell at me.”
  • “I cheated on the test because I was afraid of jeopardizing my GPA and my future.”
  • “I could not be honest about my affairs because I was afraid of hurting you.”
  • “I could not follow Jesus because I feared the repercussion of following Jesus in terms of what parents would say.”
  • “I could not wholeheartedly follow Jesus because I feared poverty and suffering.”

How can such a person come to a genuine repentance?  I thought about Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus acting out in courage only after Jesus’ death.” Read more…

Kelly Kang is Pastor Ed Kang’s wife who is serving at Gracepoint Berkeley.  Find more thoughts and reflections here.
