What Does It Mean to Repent?
A person repents when he recognizes he is a sinner, asks God to forgive him for having sinned against Him, and then abandons his sins. Although it may seem impossible to abandon things that may have dominated you for years – be they alcohol, drugs, bad thoughts, sexual sins or countless other sins – the truth is that when you repent and give God control of your life, you allow Him to miraculously and instantly set you free from these evil forces…all by the supernatural power of the Holy Ghost. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise…but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
Pray right now, confessing your sins to God and asking Him to take away the desire to sin. Commit to serving Him and letting His Word teach you.
