Night 6-The Sinner’s Prayer (I Repent)

Updated: Mar 7


The next part of the sinner's prayer is "I Repent", but what does this really mean? True repentance doesn’t just mean that we say “sorry.” We need to understand what we are truly committing to when we say "I repent" during the sinner's prayer. 



Feeling sorry for your sin is a good thing in itself, but it must be followed with action. Let's say a man commits adultery. He is broken and sorrowful, but what follows this? Does he actually confess this to his spouse? Does he continue in sin or does he show through his actions that he has repented. Repentance produces life changing fruit not just sorrowful tears of regret. If we are truly born again, we will produce good fruit. Jesus said in Matthew 7:17, "Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit…Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them". Therefore, you can truly see where you are in your walk with God by looking at how you speak, how you act, and your attitudes. 



On Judgement Day, we will all be held accountable before God for every single action and word we say, as well as every action and word we don't say.  In Matthew 7:21-23 it says, "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." Every single thing we do or do not do throughout our lives here on earth, including the very motives and attitudes we had at the time, will be judged.



When we say "I Repent" we must be truly willing to start the process of changing our mind, heart, and behavior to follow God's Will and His Ways. 


In this topic, Paztuh Mike will talk about the definition of true repentance, consequences of not repenting, and how to repent biblically. It is a convicting but vital message for the body of Christ to truly turn from sin and our own way, and turn to God.
