Maybe the reason God is waiting to "clean house" is for you and me to make some changes, and not just other people
Can repentance alone redeem us?
Once we decide that "enough is enough" with respect to the impact of sin in our lives, we have a choice as to what to do next.
When we see the signs and ignore them, we can't blame others for the results of our choices.
Carrying the weight of sin around is painful. If we just come clean and admit that we have failed, would a loving God welcome us back?
It's frustrating when little kids won't let you help them. I wonder if Jesus feels the same way?
Even if we look like we are sorry for what we have done, it doesn't really change anything if we don't work to also change our heart and our actions.
