True repentance has something to do with changing a man’s HEART! When his heart is broken toward God, his habits will conform to his state of heart.
True repentance produces a proper ATTITUDE toward God, towards His commandments, and toward others; this, in turn, results in actions which adorn the gospel.
True repentance works on the MIND and the MOTIVES of believers, thus resulting in manners becoming the grace of God. This was why our Lord said, “Cleanse FIRST that which is within…”
It is impossible to reverse the procedure. Let us seek and pray for true conversion and repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
