I thought of this illustration about two years ago. Then a few months ago I heard Winkie Pratney, in a video on this site, give the same illustration! I was so disapointed! I thought I was being origional! Oh well, it is still a good illustration of true repentance:TRUE REPENTANCETrue repentance is like this: imagine your driving down a road. It is a two way road. Your not really paying attention and wonder into the other side. Then you suddenly realize that a MAC truck is heading straight for you. So what do you do? Do you slowly turn the wheel and get back in the other lane? No way! You turn quickly and get COMPLETELY back in the other lane, because even if just a little bit of your car is on the other side, your could get killed!!Likewise, when your driving down the road of life and you sin, you are on the wrong side of the road. Then you realize that the MAC truck of death and hell is heading straight for you. So what do you do? Do you slowly repent? No way!! You COMPLETELY repent and get back on the right side because even if just a little bit of your life is left in the other lane, you'll get killed!
They say its hard- impossible,But Lord I have to try.My soul longs for your holiness,Please give it else I die.I say, in him your holiness you find!So stop trying, thou has it nigh!Rest now, imputed it is already thine.Thou needest not die.Sincerely,Picky400

...you suddenly realize that a MAC truck is heading straight for you.
Good point Zeke,I would also add that "getting out of the way" is getting "in Christ" NOT "living a holy life". Judging by some of your other posts Zeke, I know that you get this point. Others need to realize that living Holy lives didn't work for the Jews and it's not going to work for us either.Picky400
I apologize that I sometime forget to make paragraphs. I also apologize that out of all I had to say, that was the only response deemed worthy comment on.
