Godly Sadness Brings Repentance

We should not feel fear and guilt over calling fellow believers out on their chosen paths when those paths are leading away from God. Yes, they will most likely not take it very well, react in anger or hurt, but those emotions could be the very thing to spark change in their heart; to wake them up to the voice of the Holy Spirit that has been ignored so long that He is no longer heard at all. We should hope that the confrontation upsets them enough to make them return to God’s way. They become upset because God is convicting them, He wants them to feel the remorse and turn so we must not fear their reaction nor feel guilty for causing it.
