“Godly Sorrow Worketh...”
by A. W. Tozer   
August 1st, 2007

For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of. 2 Corinthians 7:10

It is a fact that the New Testament message of good news, “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures,” embraces a great deal more than an offer of free pardon.

Surely it is a message of pardon – and for that may God be praised – but it is also a message of repentance!

It is a message of atonement – but it is also a message of temperance and righteousness and godliness in this present world!

It tells us that we must accept a Saviour – but it tells us also that we must deny ungodliness and worldly lusts!

The gospel message includes the idea of amendment – of separation from the world, of cross-carrying and loyalty to the kingdom of God even unto death!

These are all corollaries of the gospel and not the gospel itself; but they are part and parcel of the total message which we are commissioned to declare. No man has authority to divide the truth and preach only a part of it. To do so is to weaken it and render it without effect!
