The goodness, virtue, and forbearance of God aim to lead us to repentance. Even the punishments of God aim to lead men to repentance.
Were you misled? Did you fall? Did you sin? Did you distance yourself from God? Were you lost? Come back. Come to your senses and come back. Christ is waiting for you.
As man catches himself going wrong and failing to keep Christ’s commands, he’ll repent, but at the same time he’ll keep trying. He shouldn’t despair.
If we endure and have a humble spirit, everything will be done; everything will take place in due time. The providence of God acts with tremendous accuracy.
