The Folly of "Getting Back on Track"

If you think of the repentance that comes with sanctification as a point where you decide to start "getting back on track" with God....

...I have to ask...

...when exactly where you ever ON track before?

Examine yourself in light of the Ten Commandments and be brutally honest with yourself.

Being on a track that is laid by the abilities of mere human achievement is not a train that I would want to be on... ever.

Repentance is not "getting back on track". That is the talk of legalistic moralism. Instead, repentance is the process of being drawn to the cross by the power of the Holy Spirit.
