Romans 2:05 -The Unrepentant Heart Bookmark

Romans 2:5

"But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God," NASB

"But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;" KJV

"But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God's righteous judgment will be revealed." NLT

"But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath for yourselves in the day of wrath, when God's righteous judgment is revealed!" NET

See yesterday's post on Romans 2:4 for Repentance.

Penitence
PEN'ITENCE

PENITENCY, n. [L. poenitentia, from poeniteo, from poena, pain, punishment. See Pain.] Repentance; pain; sorrow or grief of heart for sins or offenses; contrition. Real penitence springs from a conviction of guilt and ingratitude to God, and is followed by amendment of life.
Penitent
PEN'ITENT, a. [L.poenitens.] Suffering pain or sorrow of heart on account of sins, crimes or offenses; contrite; sincerely affected by a sense of guilt and resolving on amendment of life.
Impenitence
IMPEN'ITENCE

IMPEN'ITENCY, n. [L. in and poenitens, from poeniteo, to repent, poena, pain.] Want of penitence or repentance; absence of contrition or sorrow for sin; obduracy; hardness of heart. Final impenitence dooms the sinner to inevitable punishment.

He will advance from one degree of impenitence to another.

Impenitent
IMPEN'ITENT, a. Not penitent; not repenting of sin; not contrite; obdurate; of a hard heart.

They died Impenitent.

IMPEN'ITENT, n. One who does not repent; a hardened sinner.

Penitence is the work of the Holy Spirit upon the heart that allows us to grieve over our sin in the same way He grieves because of it.  A word not used much these days in the politically correct world. However, the Word of God is NOT politically correct but rather sharp as a two edged sword that penetrates the very thoughts of man!  God does not need a slick marketing campaign, a prayer of Jabez, or 40 day of purpose! He is God! His wrath is real and should be feared.  His salvation is amazing beyond words and should be appreciated. But there is the hardness/stubbornness of heart that is at issue.  Apart from God's intervention we have no hope to overcome this hardness.  We ought to be asking Him each day to tear down the hardened walls of our hearts that we may know Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith.
