Repentance from Sin is a foundational principle for we who are followers of Jesus Christ.
In Acts Chapter 2 verse 38 Peter responds to the question - "What will we do...?"
with the command, the exortation to repent.
My testomony is that repentance is God's key to His impartation of His forgiveness to me for my sin
and for my relese from it's bondages.
I love the Lord because He first loved me.
but after I endured being sexually abused in my infant years ( csa) I was raised on a lie that I was mummies perfect boy.
that lie conceiled the carnage of csa
In my early twenties The Lord showed me the truth that set me free
in 1 John Chapter 1 verse 8 - I didn't have to play "being good" any more
I hated the facade, the lie to cover up csa
one day, after hearing a message from Winkie Pratney I was convicted of my sin
fell to the floor on my knees and confessed that I am a sinneer - releasing me from the lie that had imprisoned me in
the mask of a goodie goodie mummies boy - which in my heart I ws and am not.
I was free ! I hated living the lie outlined in 1 John 1 verse 10.
I willingly confessed my sins before God , as He showed them to me,
and found His forgiveness promised in 1 John 1 verse 9.
