The Goodness of God

The Bible says it’s the goodness of God that leads us to repentance (Romans 2:4). I think repentance has become a bad word today. If you talk about repenting in the church you’d think you’d just cussed. Some people will bawl crocodile tears and say, Oh, I’m so sorry. I’ll never do it again, Brother Rodney Howard Browne, I’ll never do it again.”

You pray with them and they go right out the door and do it

again. They didn’t repent!

 

Jesus said, “All that the Father giveth me shall come

to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out”

(John 6:37).

 

God doesn’t reject you, He accepts you. Yet there are

ministers who thinking they’re John the Baptist

and they want to knock people over the head all the time

and hope that they’re going to come in and get saved.

 

Even an old hog has enough brains to know that if

every time he goes to drink from a water trough, a brick

falls on his head – he shouldn’t drink there anymore. And

people wonder why no one wants to come to church. It’s

because the preacher beats them up.

 

The Bible says it’s the goodness of God that leads

to repentance. The Bible also says, “Whosoever shall call

upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).

God will not cast anyone away.

 

You may say, “Brother Rodney, I’ve had it with

that person. I’m as the end of my rope with that person.”

The end of your rope is the beginning of God’s rope.

Where your grace ends, God’s grace begins. Where your

mercy ends, God’s mercy begins. Where your love ends,

the love of God begins.

 

Some Christians are a terrible advertisement for the

Lord Jesus Christ. In actual fat, I wouldn’t send some

Christians to help someone on the brink of suicide. The

man’s standing at the top of a 30-story building about to

jump off. You send some believer there and the man will

take one look at them and say, “That’s it. I thought there

might be hope, but now that I look at his face I know

there’s no hope.”

 

Too many Christians are walking around looking

like a bomb hit them. “I’m saved, Brother Rodney Howard

Browne.” Saved from what?

 

“I’ve been in the Way for forty years.” It’s

time you got out of the way so we can move one.

Some people believe 1 John 1:9 is for the sinner.

 

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us

our sins.” That’s not written to the sinner; it’s written to

the Church. If a 40-year-old sinner had to confess his sins,

he’d have a lot of sins to confess. It would take him

another 40 years to confess his sins. It’s for the believer to

confess his sins.

 

God doesn’t find out about your sins when you

confess them. Some people think when they go to God and

say, “Lord, I’ve sinned,” God says, “My, I didn’t know

that.” God is not surprised by your sin. He’s waiting for

you to confess them so He can forgive them.

 

Sin separates. You watch people who were on fire

for God and suddenly they get into an area of deception and

they open themselves up to sin. The devil knocks them in

the head and they go into an area of sin and then they stop

going to church.

 

Romans 10:8, 9 says, “But what saith it? The word

is nigh thee, even in they mouth, and in they heart: that is,

the work of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt

confess with they mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe

in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou

shalt be saved.”

 

God wants you to run to Him, not from Him. If you

confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, believe in your

heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

That is what gets us born again.

 

For with the heart man believeth

unto righteousness: and with the mouth

confession is made unto salvation.

For the scripture sayeth,

 

Whosoever believeth in him shall not be

ashamed.

 

For there is no difference between

the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord

over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

For whosoever shall call upon the

name of the Lord shall be saved.

How then shall they call on him in

whom they have not believed? and how

shall they believe in him of whom they

have not heard? and how shall they hear

without a preacher?

 

And how shall they preach, except

they be sent? as it is written, How

beautiful are the feet of them that preach

the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings

of good things!

Romans 10:10-15

 

But as many as received him, to

them gave he power to become the sons of

God

John 1:12

 

God has a plan for your life. Accept Jesus today,

come as you are, and allow Jesus to come into your heart.

 

Pray this prayer right now:

 

Father, I come to You in the precious name of

Jesus. Lord, You said in Your Word that if I confess with

my mouth Jesus is Lord and I believe with my heart that

God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. So Father, I

confess right now Jesus Christ is my Lord and my Savior.

Lord Jesus, come into my heart. I repent of all my

sins. Wash me in Your precious blood and cleanse me of

all my sin. I turn my back on the world. I will serve You

from this day onwards. Thank You for changing my life.

Amen.

Son Jesus. Lord You said in Your Word, that if I confess

with my mouth that Jesus Christ is my Lord and my Savior

and I believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the

dead that I will be saved.

 

I make the decision today to surrender every area of

my life to the lordship of Jesus. Jesus come into my heart take

out the stony heart and put in a heart of flesh. I turn

my back on the world and on sin-I repent and I put my trust

in You-I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I would like to

thank You for dying on the cross for my sin and shedding

 

Your blood for me so that I might be forgiven of my sin.

Thank You that You rose from the dead and that one day

You are coming back for me.

 

I confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh ad

the He is my personal Lord and Savior-thank You Lord

Jesus for saving me. I accept by faith the free gift of

salvation. Amen (so be it).

 

Dear Friend,

If you just prayed that prayer, I would like to

welcome you into the family of God- your sins are forgiven this

is the good news of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

You are now a child of God and you will live with Him

forever. I encourage you to do several things to get to

know Him.

 

1. Read your Bible and pray every day (talk to Jesus about

everything in your life).

 

2. Find a Bible-believing church that believes in the

lordship of Jesus Christ.

 

3. Be around strong believers that will encourage you in

your walk with God and lift you up.

 

4. Tell someone around you of your new- found faith and

joy that only Jesus can bring.

 

5. Use this book and my other books and tapes to help you

in your new walk with God.
