Biblical Nuggets: Three Elements of Repentance

Three Elements of Repentance

(a) Acknowledgment of sin or Admission of sin

It is more than saying that no one is perfect in this fallen world. Recognition of what the Bible says about us and the need of a Savior is true. We admit to be sinner is to accept the truth of the Bible. So, to love God is to keep his commandments.

(b) Sorrow for sin

It is more than being sad for consequences or more than being in troubled by sin. Sorrow for sin means that you dishonored God.

(c) Turning from sin

Repentance (root meaning) is to remorse for your past conducts; we put sin away. It is not simply avoiding sin but putting sin away forever. So, it is going to new direction.
