Repentance

It’s hard to follow the last post with some content that “tops” what I previously wrote, so I’m not even going to try.  Thank God that I’m not in the blog business to “top” the last thing I did.  I just want to remain faithful to God, that’s what matters.  Regardless of the rant, I would like thank you to everyone who commented on the previous post with prayers and concern.  Your understanding means the world to my wife and I and your prayers mean even more.  It’s amazing how prayer not only connects us to our Savior but to each other as well.

With that said, a small group of people and I have been having some interesting discussions lately.  It is amazing to ponder the concepts of Christ and apply them to our everyday life.  Conversation is crucial to life.  It helps us connect to each other even more.  Listening to others, who would have thought it would help us.

From time to time I let people in on what was said in our discussions.  I like to allow people to think about the discussion, even if they weren’t there.  Our last conversation involved the concept of repentance.  We were discussing the word in general and the biblical passages that talk about it.  Below I posted some passages and the questions we were asking.  join in as you feel lead, if at all.  I would love to hear you incites.

Some Passages (there are a lot more)

  • Ezekiel 18:30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord God. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin.”
  • Hebrews 6:1 “let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works”,
  • Acts 20:21, “repentance toward God and faith towards of Lord Jesus Christ.”

Starting Questions

  1. Define repentance in a worldly sense define repentance in a biblical sense.  How are they the same, how do they differ?
  2. What is the relationship, if any, between repentance and sin?
  3. How is repentance a change and why does it matter?

I love that our conversations are a reflection of the relationship we have daily with Jesus Christ.  You can tell how much people spend time with God in the week by how they communicate and the depth they have.

What are your thoughts?
