From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Repentance is a change of thought and action to correct a wrong and gain forgiveness from a person who is wronged. In religious contexts it usually refers to confession to God, ceasing sin against God, and resolving to live according to religious law. It typically includes an admission of guilt, a promise or resolve not to repeat the offense; an attempt to make restitution for the wrong, or in some way to reverse the harmful effects of the wrong where possible.
.. A description of repentance in the New Testament can be found in the parable of the prodigal son found in the Gospel of Luke (15 beginning at verse 11). 


2 Corinthians 7:10   "For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. For observe this very thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner: What diligence it produced in you, what clearing of yourselves, what indignation , what fear, what vehement desire, what zeal, what vindication! In all things you proved yourselves to be clear in this matter." 

This scripture offers hope for us all. It allows us to be aware of  the fact that although we make an error we can get it right while there is still time! We can go to the Lord of Hosts, humbly and sincerely, and offer up our prayer of repentance and in return receive the greatest gift of all- forgiveness! The ultimate sacrifice of Jesus dying on the tree (cross) was God Himself-reincarnated as Man, the Word becoming flesh... (St. John 1:1-14)! Jesus taken all sin upon Himself, so we in turn can live an abundant life, saved and covered by the blood of Jesus! Hallelujah-that's joy for me! Repentance is absolutely essential for our salvation from God! To be aware of the fact that we do need a Savior to look after us through the power & guidance of His Holy Spirit...to teach us and use us as a tool, an ambassador to spread the gospel of Christ Jesus! So yes this is our first step...acknowledging God for who He is in His complete Deity, believing that He was, He is & He whom is to come...and that He did indeed rise on the third day after His crucifixion! Going to the Lord in prayer & repenting from our pass conduct and making a conscious decision & effort to get aligned with The King of Kings is our first step to living an obedient life to Christ, the Author & Finisher of our faith!
