REAL
REPENTANCE
INVOLVES FAITH
Why Real
Repentance
must Involve
Faith?
•Real repentance must involve faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ: faith that He can change us, faith
that He can forgive us, and faith that He will help
us avoid more mistakes. This kind of faith makes
His Atonement effective in our lives.
Why Real Repentance must Involve Faith?
What is
Repentance?
Repentance
•Repentance is the way provided for us to
become free from our sins and receive
forgiveness for them. Sins slow our spiritual
progression and can even stop it. Repentance
makes it possible for us to grow and develop
spiritually again. The privilege of repenting is
made possible through the Atonement of Jesus
Christ.
What is Faith?
Faith
•Biblically, faith is considered a belief and trust in
God based on evidence but without total proof.
This idea is associated with "taking a leap of faith,
" a common English idiom. Among all definitions,
faith holds a common theme: trust. Whether
you're putting faith in a person, duty or belief,
trust is a necessity.
5 R's of Repentance
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Recognition of sin
Remorse for sin
Resolve over sin
Reformation from sin
Restitution for sin .
•
•
•
The first "R", is the "Recognition of sin".
And that comes about as we spend time with God in His word, and learn
what it teaches us. It's a part of "hearing" the word. Psalm 51, verses 1
thru 4, says this; "..Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy
lovingkindness: According unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies, blot
out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse
me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever
before me."
Now that's quite the prayer for forgiveness, that King David spoke, before
the Lord God. But David hadn't always recognized his own sin. No, it took
the prophet Nathan, sent from God, to confront David about his sin, and to
"help" him recognize his sin. THEN, afterwards, then David had second
thoughts. After God's word was brought to David, then he recognized his
sin and repented.
1. Recognition of sin
2. remorse for sin
The second "R" is the "Remorse for sin"
Listen to what the apostle Paul wrote to his Corinthians brethren, in
2 Corinthians 7, verses 8 thru 11; "For though I caused you sorrow by
my letter, (Some of the Corinthians had been involved in some
grievous sins, and Paul told had rebuked them sharply for it) So Paul
says.. "I do not regret it; Though I did regret it, for I see that that
letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while. Now I rejoice, not
that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance.
remorse for sin
For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer
loss from us in nothing. For godly sorrow (that's the kind of sorrow
we feel when we know we have sinned against God, and maybe
others also) "For godly sorrow produces repentance, leading to
salvation, not to be regretted; (Surely no one regrets anything that
helps lead them to salvation) But the sorrow of the world, produces
death. (Everything "of the world" produces death, doesn't it?) For
observe this very thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner:
remorse for sin
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."
3. Resolve over sin
The third "R", is the "Resolve over sin"
Your determination, to change your mind about sin; About not being a part
of sin; And to be forgiven of sin! Proverbs 28:13 says; "He who conceals his
sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them, will find
mercy." I'm sure truer words, could not be spoken! Verse 14 says; "How
blessed is the person who fears always; But one who hardens his heart, will fall
into disaster." We need to be resolved, and be full of reverence, for God and
for His word.
resolve over sin
Remember this hymn? "I am resolved, no longer to
linger, charmed by the worlds delight; Things that are
higher, things that are nobler, these have allured my
sight." Resolved to turn FROM the world, and to turn
TO God!
resolve over sin
Romans 12, verses 1 & 2 exhorts, and encourages us with these words; "I
beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present
your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your
reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye
transformed, by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that
good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." That's what "resolve" is! "Be
ye transformed, by the renewing of your mind.." And how do you do that?
You do it by being accompanied always, by God's word. And let those words
and thoughts change your mind, and renew it.
4. Reformation from sin
And the fourth "R" of Repentance, is "Reformation from sin"
A change of lifestyle, a reformation of actions and behavior. That's
what it takes to be forgiven, a change of behavior, maybe even a
change of lifestyle, but certainly a change from sinning.
John the baptist, told the Pharisees, and the Sadducees, in Mathew
3, verse 8; "Therefore bring forth fruits, worthy of repentance."
Reformation from sin
We're told in Ezekiel 18, verses 21 & 22; "But if the wicked will turn from all his
sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is
lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his offenses which he
has committed, will not be remembered against him; Because of his
righteousness which he has practiced, he will live."
Reformation from sin
We simply will not make it, without a change of behavior. We've all sinned and
fallen short.. Romans 3:23. Do you know what our new attitude in life needs
to be? Galatians 2, verse 20 tells us; "I have been crucified with Christ, and
I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the LIFE which I now live in the flesh,
(My lifestyle) I live through faith in the Son of God, the One having loved me,
and having given up Himself for me."
"..if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one
another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin." 1 John 1,
verse 7.
5. Restitution for sin
And finally, the fifth "R" of Repentance
And this is one that you might to have thought of. But the fifth "R" is
"Restitution for sin".
Did you hear about the boy who wanted a new bicycle, but he didn't have the
money to buy one, and so he decided to steal one. Well, he knew right from
wrong, but sometimes our mind can try to justify our actions. And so he
thought, I'll steal the bike, and then afterwards, I'll simply repent, and
everything will be OK. But it doesn't quite work that way does it? No, you
need to make restitution, if at all possible.
Restitution for sin
You can't keep something you stole, and you can't just ignore
a wrong done, and call it repentance.
A man named Zacchaeus came to Jesus looking for
forgiveness. And Zacchaeus said in Luke 19:8; "Behold Lord,
half of my possessions I give to the poor; And if I have
defrauded anything of anyone, I restore it fourfold."
Restitution for sin
But hopefully we've not been guilty of defrauding anyone, or
stealing from anyone. So how do we make restitution for
our sins? How do we make restitution for an unclean
thought, or an unkind word; You can't un-ring a bell, can you?
What if our sin is a failure to do, what w know should have
been done? I suppose that sometimes, a heartfelt apology,
and a heartfelt prayer, might be all the restitution that is
Restitution for sin
possible. And so I suppose the point is, we
must do, whatever is needed, and whatever
is possible, to make right, what's been wrong.
Streng ening our fai

  • 8. 5 R's of Repentance 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Recognition of sin Remorse for sin Resolve over sin Reformation from sin Restitution for sin .
  • 9. • • • The first "R", is the "Recognition of sin". And that comes about as we spend time with God in His word, and learn what it teaches us. It's a part of "hearing" the word. Psalm 51, verses 1 thru 4, says this; "..Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy lovingkindness: According unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me." Now that's quite the prayer for forgiveness, that King David spoke, before the Lord God. But David hadn't always recognized his own sin. No, it took the prophet Nathan, sent from God, to confront David about his sin, and to "help" him recognize his sin. THEN, afterwards, then David had second thoughts. After God's word was brought to David, then he recognized his sin and repented. 1. Recognition of sin
  • 10. 2. remorse for sin The second "R" is the "Remorse for sin" Listen to what the apostle Paul wrote to his Corinthians brethren, in 2 Corinthians 7, verses 8 thru 11; "For though I caused you sorrow by my letter, (Some of the Corinthians had been involved in some grievous sins, and Paul told had rebuked them sharply for it) So Paul says.. "I do not regret it; Though I did regret it, for I see that that letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while. Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance.
  • 11. remorse for sin For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. For godly sorrow (that's the kind of sorrow we feel when we know we have sinned against God, and maybe others also) "For godly sorrow produces repentance, leading to salvation, not to be regretted; (Surely no one regrets anything that helps lead them to salvation) But the sorrow of the world, produces death. (Everything "of the world" produces death, doesn't it?) For observe this very thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner:
  • 12. remorse for sin 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."
  • 13. 3. Resolve over sin The third "R", is the "Resolve over sin" Your determination, to change your mind about sin; About not being a part of sin; And to be forgiven of sin! Proverbs 28:13 says; "He who conceals his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them, will find mercy." I'm sure truer words, could not be spoken! Verse 14 says; "How blessed is the person who fears always; But one who hardens his heart, will fall into disaster." We need to be resolved, and be full of reverence, for God and for His word.

  • 16. 4. Reformation from sin And the fourth "R" of Repentance, is "Reformation from sin" A change of lifestyle, a reformation of actions and behavior.

Well, he knew right from wrong, but sometimes our mind can try to justify our actions. And so he thought, I'll steal the bike, and then afterwards, I'll simply repent, and everything will be OK.
