Fear of God Devotional: What are the Components of Repentance?



What are the components of repentance?

Mike Davenport explains in this video that there are two elements of repentance. Repentance first involves a turning to God and a subsequent turning away from sin. You cannot serve both God and indulge in your sin.

There cannot be an association or connection between God and sin. Repentance involves the understanding of how sinful you are and a turning to God. A mere turning away from sin is not sufficient.  

1 Thessalonians 1:9 (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.”
