Fear of God Devotional: Measuring the Quality of One’s Repentance

How can we measure the quality of someone’s repentance?

Anthony Mathenia explains in this video that measuring true repentance over a short period of time is difficult. Over a long period of time, we can begin to see the fruits of the repentance and see that there has been a change of direction. We can see that they are not giving into sin as before. 

Rather, they have turned to Christ, turned away from sin, and continue to be conformed to His image.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV) – “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
