Being Repentant

745_WomanPrayingPsalms 51:1 – “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to they loving kindness, according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies, blot out my transgressions”

Repentance is an amazing work of God and of grace.  No other experience is quite the same as the experience of repentance.  It is the first step in a life that has turned in the right direction.  It was the initial step Peter commanded on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:38)  When a sinner repents, his life begins a wonderful transformation, and even the angels in Heaven rejoice

Only God knows fully what takes place when someone genuinely repents, but everyone can see the difference.  The habitual liar becomes scrupulously honest.  The thief finds respectable employment.  The adulterer or adulteress becomes faithful to their spouse.  There is simply a change like that which comes with repentance; and knowing our desperate need, Jesus taught “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5)

None of us wants to perish and be lost, so the question remains now; “Are you repentant”
