Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: What comes to mind when I say “repentance”?
Woman: I repented, if you want to call it that, oh, about fourteen years ago. That’s about it; is there more to it?
Nancy: When we come to Christ at the moment of salvation, we have to come with a heart of repentance, turning away from sin and turning to Christ for forgiveness.
But repentance doesn’t stop there. We need a continual attitude of repentance in our relationship with God.
We’re still tempted, and we still sin. And those who are truly children of God will have a desire to confess and turn from sin whenever they’re confronted with it.
The apostle Paul said, “Godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death” (2 Cor. 7:10). Is there any unconfessed sin in your life? Would you ask God to give you godly grief that leads to repentance? We’ll need it from now until we go home to be with Him.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
