Characteristics of Repentance

text size A A A

What are some of the characteristics of repentance?

Jeff Pollard explains in this video that true, biblical repentance has certain characteristics that Paul lays out in 2 Corinthians 7. Specifically, repentance brings about a sorrow for sin, an indignation and a hatred towards sin, and a zeal to strive after godly things.

Those who have repented realize that they have offended God and they seek to be reconciled with God. They desire to make restitution and do whatever it takes to forsake sin. They yearn to walk with Christ and have their lives honor Him. 

2 Corinthians 7:11 (NKJV) – “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.”
