The first condition is repentance, which means a change of mind. Formerly I thought sin a pleasant thing, but now I have changed my mind about it; formerly I thought the world an attractive place, but now I know better; formerly I regarded it a miserable business to be a Christian, but now I think differently. Once I thought certain things delightful, now I think them vile; once I thought other things utterly worthless, now I think them most precious. That is a change of mind, and that is repentance.

Hurricane Katrina was a wake-up call to this country . . . It wakes us up to the fact that our God is sovereign and we should be constantly in a state of repentance humbly seeking God's favor.

    Author: Chuck Colson

We are sometimes repentant because of the harm we have done ourselves and others in our transgressions but there is little repentance toward God... We may regret what our sins do to our testimony and the evil effect on others but we are little concerned because the fellowship with God is broken. This makes for shallow and inadequate confession because we have not touched the heart of the trouble.

    Author: Vance Havner

The Christian who has stopped repenting has stopped growing.
