|† Repentance †|
|Then Jesus began to denounce the towns in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent. Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Matthew 11:20–21 NIV|
|When John the Baptist came to prepare the way for Jesus he brought a message of repentance. When Jesus came he healed the sick, raised the dead, sought out the lost, and preached repentance. Repentance is a change of your ways, a change in your mind, a change in your actions. It is changing your life to line up with God’s plan for it.
Repentance involves saying: “I am sorry for that…”. Though it is not popular today, it is the number one way to take a load off of your shoulders and make things right with God. Simple, but yet difficult because our very nature wants to hide our mistakes.
