Something to think about…

ShiftThe Greek word, metanoeō (μετανοέω) is translated “repent” in English Bibles. This is unfortunate because that word implies a form of penance (“re-penance”). The word actually means to change your mind…or be “re-formed.”

You cannot change your life through penance, but you can change your mind. And when you change your mind, God can change your life.

About Mel Wild

God's favorite (and so are you), a son and a father, happily married to the same beautiful woman for 36 years. We have three incredible adult children. My passion is pursuing the Father's heart in Christ and giving it away to others. My favorite pastime is being iconoclastic and trailblazing the depths of God's grace. I'm also senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in Wisconsin.
