True Repentance

Bookmark and Share

Our culture has watered down the definition of SIN.

Sin is "not" gray.

Sin "is" black.

It's dark.

It's cold.

It's costly.

It's deadly.

When you get sick and tired of being sick and tired...

When you hate the wages of sin...

When you despise the guilt and shame of sin...

When you surrender your WHOLE HEART to the Lord...

That's when true SALVATION takes place.

That's when you are born again.

Counterfeit Salvation is running rampant in America.

There is only one way to true conversion...

Repentance is not in your tears.

It's not in your shame.

Repentance is not saying, "I'm sorry."

While all of these things are good and may be an overflow of genuine repentance, there is only one way to truly repent from sin and turn to God.

  • Change of heart.
  • Change of mind.
  • Change of direction.

When you finally agree with God about the boundaries of sin, the deceitfulness of sin, the poison of sin and the curse of sin...

You will be free indeed!

"For [godly] sorrow that is in accord with the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation; but worldly sorrow [the hopeless sorrow of those who do not believe] produces death." - 2 Corinthians 7:10 (AMP)


Scriptures Concerning Salvation, Repentance, Cleansing, Mercy and Grace:

Acts 3:19 - Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

2 Chronicles 7:14 - If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

2 Peter 3:9 - The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Revelation 2:5 - Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Proverbs 28:13 - He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh [them] shall have mercy.

Matthew 4:17 - From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Romans 2:4 - Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

Surrender all of self.

Accept all of Him.
