Repent – Luke 15:10

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Luke 15:10
In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.

When one sinner repents. Repent. What does that word mean? It means to turn from. To go a different direction. The Hebrew form of this word is “teshuva”.

So when one sinner turns from sinning, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels. But please know, repentance without change is not repentance. Feeling sorry for your sins is great. However, YHWH wants action. A choice is finalized by an action. You may say you are going to by apples at the store, but if you bring home pears, what did you choose? You may say you have repented, but what does your actions show?

So we may say we have repented of our sins, but until that repentance is lived out in action, can we really say we have repented? Have you turned from your sins? Seriously. Have you turned away from them? Have you rejected them in your life? What does “repent” mean to you?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
