Many people get uncomfortable when they hear the word Repent. However when I think of this word, I am always very happy. To repent is to turn around. To stop doing the things that hurt you and others and begin to do things that build you and others. We are not to point fingers at others when they sin, we should simply encourage them to repent. To turn around and stay on the right path.
I know that many people would agree that staying on the right path can be very difficult. That is why we have the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit guides us and teaches what we should do. And when we fail to do the right things, the Holy Spirit also convicts us of our sins. It is the Holy Spirit also that reminds us that through Christ Jesus, all our sins are forgiven and we can repent and enjoy the peace of God.
I am always happy when I repent because I know that from that moment, things will get better. Things will move in the right direction and God’s will in my life will be done. Although it does not feel good many time to find out that one is wrong but once we know that we are doing the wrong things, we should repent immediately and keep a very tender conscience.
