To repent in the Bible is “to turn back, to turn away, to change one’s mind.” Repentance is a radical turning away from sin and all that is offensive to God. It involves both turning away from their unbelief and unfaithfulness to God and turning back to God in love, obedience and sincerity.
Reconciliation is a word that evokes hope. To restore broken relationships, one has to take steps of humility and dying to self. Certainly not easy but definitely worth the joy and peace of reconciled ties and more meaningful relations.
LISTENING TO GOD
Listening to God is to deliberately stop, literally and figuratively, what we are doing and intentionally give our full attention to what He is trying to say so that we do not miss His message and respond to Him in humble obedience.
