What is the source of true repentance?

Michael Beasley explains in this video that the starting point of repentance and the source of repentance is the Spirit of God working in the heart of a sinner. It is a blessing to us that the Spirit of God brings about the conviction of sin.

One lesson that we can learn from the book of James is that when we sin, we must understand that we are the ones who sin. We are not to blame God when we are tempted and carried away and enticed by our own lusts. We cannot blame others for our sins. Repentance begins with the acknowledgment that we have sinned and it is imperative that we acknowledge our own culpability and responsibility for sin. Without this, there is only mere sorrow without actual responsibility for sin. 

1 John 1:9 (NKJV) - "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
