This month’s theme on our radio broadcast has been forgiveness. We have had wonderful questions on the topic, plus some lively discussion.
There is strong push back to the liberating truth of our total and complete forgiveness in Christ. Behind most of that push back is the concept of repentance.
I throw this question out: how do you define repentance?
Let me tell you what is not before you answer. Repentance is not asking God for forgiveness when you sin. Yet, this is the most commonly held belief. When asked, ”what do you do when you sin?” those who hold this belief answer, ”you repent, you confess your sin and ask God to forgive you.”
Lot’s of people, both believers and unbelievers, follow this formula, but nothing changes in their lives.
Repentance is a big word that carries profound implications. That said, what is your definition of repentance?
I look forward to reading your posts. Tune in this Thursday for the radio broadcast as we take a closer look at this life-changing word.
