Fear of God Devotional: Repentance And Faith



Does repentance continue to be an ongoing act in the life of a Christian after conversion?

Jeff Pollard explains in this video that repentance is an ongoing act in the Christian life. At regeneration, when an elect sinner tastes the glorious grace of God in Jesus Christ and the Spirit of God moves upon his heart, breathing life into his soul, two things arise: 

First, repentance. There is a change of mind leads to a change of action. Second, faith. Repentance and faith together are conversion. Conversion is a turning of life. We repent and turn in another direction. But, because we still have a sinful flesh, repentance simply becomes a way of life for the believer. It is a continual act in the life of every regenerate soul. 

Proverbs 28:13 (NKJV) – “He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
