    For me Repentance is a divine conviction of the separation from God for whatever reason. It is only The Holy Spirit working in me that gives me the desire to change and allow the redeeming power of Jesus to work in me to make the change, surrendering to my sin and receiving forgiveness. It’s all about Jesus, not me.

      Thanks for calling attention to God’s work in the process Laura. Nicely said.

      Thanks Laura and Maury your comments. To the unsaved, repentance to me is being convicted by the Holy Spirit that a person is a sinner in need of a savior. The sinner must understand that he/she is separated from God due to sin. By confessing that he/she is a sinner and in need of a Savior, the righteous of God is imputed on the unsaved making them righteous before a Holy God through Jesus Christ. Once declared righteous the believer must now be fed to walk and grow in the new life with the help of the Holy Spirit. The Saved person needs to confess their sins, forgiven, showing change and moving forward in their walk with the Lord.

        Thanks, Carl! For me, I’ve been thinking a lot about how repentance is a way of life. A willingness to change every time I realize I’m out of step. But that’s what you’re calling attention to with the emphasis on growth and the ongoing walk. Thanks!
