What Causes Us to Repent?

The Gospels relate that Jesus did not stay a certain town for long because he did mighty deeds there, but the people would not repent or change. Jesus told the disciples to go into a town and preach repentance, and, if the people did not repent, to shake off the dust against that town as a witness against them and move on. Opportunities for repentance come up in our lives, but we don't have to take them. Every missed opportunity is a step backward in the spiritual life. Is God giving you an opportunity to repent today? Do you have the opportunity to tell others about Jesus today? Do you have the opportunity to do good today? Do not let any good opportunity pass by you. The only one who can bring Jesus into the world that you live in may perhaps be you.
