Perspective - True Repentance

// posted Wednesday, Feb 1, 2017 by Mervyn Eloff

To repent in Biblical terms is to turn away from what is wrong and to turn back to what is right, first in one’s thinking and then, as a result of this change of mind, in one’s daily life. And as Martin Luther saw clearly, and as the Bible itself affirms, this change in mind and life was not a simple once-off thing, but a daily process. It was to this life of repentance that Jesus called people during His earthly ministry, and it is to this life of repentance that He continues to call people today.
