Fear of God Devotional: Repentance: A 180-Degree Turn

What does repentance look like?

Dennis Gunderson explains in this video that repentance is a change of mind, a complete 180-degree turn. It is a turning from the direction where we have been going, a complete change of mental thinking about sin and God. 

The source of repentance is the grace of God at work in our lives. It is a gift from God. Once God changes our hearts, a person’s path will be turned and he will forsake sin and pursue after godliness.  

1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 (NKJV) – “For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.”
