Many good and sincere people want to return to their first love of their faith in Jesus, but they haven’t been able to because of the repentance barrier, which requires an act of conscious sacrifice. They are often deceived by a feeling of remorse. However, repentance involves actions that have nothing to do with feelings of remorse.
Remorse howls of pain, but does not abandon sin.
Sometimes the heart pretends and deceives. It causes its victim to think they’ve repented because of the sadness they for the sin committed. At that moment, they cry, swear and promises never to do it again; but the sooner or sometimes later, there they are again, indulging in that sin. Pure deception
Truth is, if you depend on a feeling to repent, there will never be true repentance, which will be accompanied by God’s forgiveness and salvation.
THINK & Meditate on the following verses:
Therefore, bear fruit worthy of repentance. Matthew 3:8 MEV
Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – unless you repent. Revelation 2.5 NKJV
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 MEV
May God give you understanding and strength to take actions immediately, in Jesus name, Amen.
