If a man does not repent, God will wield His sword … But I will give to the Lord the thanks due to his righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.
We have recompense with the Lord. We are given every opportunity to repent from our sins, to cleanse our hearts before he wields His sword. Knowing this, we cannot be anything but thankful. His mercy is boundless, His love unending. Sing praise!
