#ReimaginePRAYER ~ Thoughts on Repentance

  • Repentance is more concerned with what changes inside than outside:
    • Begins with a response to the Holy Spirit (often sensed by feeling sorrow or grief over our sin)
    • But must be ore than that emotional response; our sadness must produce a cleansed, pure "heart"
    • ...and that must produce a change of mind (think differently; Romans 12:2)
  • If we confess our sins is more than saying "sorry"
    1. We must concur that what we have done, how we have thought or where we have failed to be act obediently, is sin
    2. Confess = "agree with God that what the Spirit have convicted us of is truly sin
    3. Conviction without contrition is weak; that sin will easily repeat 
  • Three Transforming Questions
    1. What? ... is the sin God wants me to repent (turn) from?
    2. So What? ...why has the Lord pointed this particular issue to me (why is this sin hurtful to the Lord? to the Body of Christ? to our Christian witness?
    3. Now What? ... does the Spirit want to do in me, to make me more like Christ? (ask someone to forgive me? change an attitude? resume a spiritual discipline? research the issue biblically?)
