A question that needs to be asked is ‘what is repentence?' Many don't know. Some think it means being sorry.
What Does The Bible Say?
Matthew 21:28-32 says... "What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.' ‘I will not,' he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I will, sir,' but he did not go. "Which of the two did what his father wanted?" "The first," they answered. Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him."
From these words of Jesus, we learn:
•1. This man gave his sons the same commandment...Go work.
•2. One son said he would not go.
•3. Then he repented (or changed his mind).
•4. We assume he was sorry about his first statement.
•5. We know he changed. This change is called repentance.
•6. If you are disobeying God and you change direction and obey Him, you are repenting.
