For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation not to be regretted: but the sorrow of the world works death. For behold this same thing, that you sorrowed after a godly sort, what earnestness it worked in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what full punishment! In all things you have proved yourselves to be pure in this matter.
Porque la tristeza que es conforme a la voluntad de Dios produce un arrepentimiento que conduce a la salvación, sin dejar pesar; pero la tristeza del mundo produce muerte. Porque mirad, ¡qué solicitud ha producido en vosotros esto, esta tristeza piadosa, qué vindicación de vosotros mismos, qué indignación, qué temor, qué gran afecto, qué celo, qué castigo del mal! En todo habéis demostrado ser inocentes en el asunto.
There is a lot of sorrow. Some sorrow is of God and some is of the world. God does not want us to have sorrow, but He uses it for His good and for a tool to fulfill His Kingdom. The world’s sorrow is not for us who trust in Jesus. There is good and bad of all; look at the words listed in the last half of this scripture. there is good indignation; there is good revenge. If we allow the Holy Spirit to guide us, the good will overwhelm the world’s ways. We are overcomers in Christ Jesus, our Lord!
And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Respondiendo Jesús, les dijo: Los sanos no tienen necesidad de médico, sino los que están enfermos. No he venido a llamar a justos, sino a pecadores al arrepentimiento.
We get so caught up in just the people within the church that are supposedly already saved. Are we out trying to reach the lost? I will try more, will you? Praise our Holy Lord!

Sometimes we don’t understand sorrow, but there are two kinds; the world’s sorrow and God’s sorrow. The first leads to death and destruction and the second leads to everlasting life. When we are sorrowful, we should take a hard look as to why. Is it the world’s sorrow or are we being sorrowful because of something God put on our hearts? There is no sorrow in heaven and if we trust God, we will know that experience. It is coming soon!
