Fear of God Devotional: The Joy That Flows from Repentance

What is one characteristic of repentance?

Curt Daniels explains in this video that there is a joy that comes after repentance. It is one evidence of true repentance. This joy comes from the fact that God forgives those who truly repent – Acts 3:19 says, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.”  

Though our sins are grievous and many, God can make them as white as snow. Isaiah 1:18 says, “‘Come now, and let us reason together,’ Says the Lord, ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.'” 

1 John 1:9 (NKJV) – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
