Fear of God Devotional: What is an Example of True Repentance?



What is an example of true repentance?

Rob Ventura explains in this video that he knew of a man who had sinned grievously. But instead of continuing to live in sin, this man confessed his heinous sin to him, his wife, and his children. 

He repented because he knew he had sinned against God and against others. He did not try to cover his sin or to make excuses for it. Repentance is a two-fold process: confessing it and forsaking it.

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