Repentance is simply changing your ways or direction that you are going. If you know that should be doing A and you do D. Stop doing D and do A. Repentance also affects ones heart. The heart is sorrowful for doing the wrong or going in the wrong direction. From repentance comes obedience. With obedience there is reward.
At Bible studies, we were to pray. I came in a little late and a sister was praying. Now I know I was supposed to pray, but I chose not to. Even though the Holy Spirit is was prompting me, I chose not to. After a discussion led by Pastor, we got a do over. Thank God for the do over. When it came time for me to pray,I repented. Yes Sir and guess what? I felt a burden lift. Thank you Lord for Your grace and mercy. Everyone was blessed!
The moral of this blog is simply to do what is required and you will get your reward faster.
