STEPS TO BIBLICAL REPENTANCE
TEXT: ROMANS 10:6-13
MEMORY VERSE: “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (MARK 1:15).
“True repentance is no light matter. It is a thorough change of heart about sin, a change showing itself in godly sorrow, heartfelt confession before the throne of grace, a complete breaking off from sinful habits, and an abiding hatred for all sin. Such repentance is the inseparable companion of saving faith in Christ.” This is the position of J. C. Ryle.
Biblical Repentance is a total break away from sin. Many church goers are yet to take the steps that can grant them salvation. Unfortunately, many youths are caught in this web. Are you born again?
The steps to biblical repentance includes: acknowledgement of sins, confession and readiness to forsake them, faith in Christ’s atoning sacrifice, and acceptance of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. When these steps are genuinely taken with faith in Christ Jesus as Lord and Saviour, you shall be saved.
It is also pertinent to constantly bear the fruit of the Spirit and maintain unbroken relationship with God and the brethren. With Jesus reigning within you, the result is deep hatred for sin, showing the proof of biblical repentance.
QUOTE: Bear the fruit of the Spirit.
CHALLENGE: Biblical repentance is a total break away from sin.
