No Regrets

Hi, I'm Joni Eareckson Tada. What does it mean to live with no regrets? Second Corinthians chapter 7 talks about that where it says, “Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret.” Just why does our salvation leave no regrets? Well, to be saved means to realize your low estate before a holy God (that’s what godly sorrow is all about). And when you realize how “low” you are, your worldly expectations can’t help but be scaled back. Sure, you may endure hardship, but a lowly spirit will have you expecting less of this life, because you know that more is coming in the next life. Friend, when you see yourself as nothing, God becomes everything. You have no regrets about this world because all your hope is in the next, which, by the way, helps you live life better down here on earth. So have no regrets. It’s a way of rejoicing in your salvation!
