Jesus preached, “Repent and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). Thus a very important question is, “What is repentance?” Today’s devotional will help you answer that question both for yourself and for others. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Luke 13:5 (ESV)
No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
“Repentance is a grace of God’s Spirit whereby a sinner is inwardly humbled and visibly reformed. For a further amplification, know that repentance is a spiritual medicine made up of six special ingredients:
1. Sight of sin
2. Sorrow for sin
3. Confession of sin
4. Shame for sin
5. Hatred for sin
6. Turning from sin
If any one is left out it loses its virtue.”
[Thomas Watson, The Doctrine of Repentance, (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1668), p. 18]
