Repentance is not condemnation. It is the transformation. Repentance is becoming like Jesus. Repentance is exchanging your mindsets and taking on the mind of Christ because He knows better than we do. When we become like Him in our thinking we are empowered to act like Him and do as He says. We become motivated by the love God shows us in our own transformational repentance.
The way I originally learned repentance, you repented once, asked Jesus in your heart and you were saved. Ta dah. But life can stall right there if that is the end of it. After that fervent beginning, how many people then just come into a church building and sit year after year growing very little in Christ? Yes, they may receive a good spiritual meal from the one giving the Word that day. But does the experience translate us into becoming active disciples as we see throughout the New Testament? It’s so easy to get stuck in our own beliefs that everything is ok and nothing else really changes. We’re going to heaven so we’re OK. We come to church and sit as observers in the “audience.” We watch everything and receiving whatever the Pastor feeds us that day. Yes, it may be strength to us during our work week, but do we lead anyone to Christ? Do we disciple anyone to become like Christ? Is God using us to heal the sick and raise the dead? Jesus told His disciples to make disciples and to do as He had taught them to do.
Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
