Here is how you can know whether you have repented

2 Corinthians Bible Background

09.15.2016 – New Testament: 2Co 7.10

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Corinthians 7 on September 15, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

Sorrow without change leads to nothing. Sorrow without change keeps a person as the same person. Change without sorrow for past wrongs will not last long. Therefore, the Scripture says,

For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death (2 Corinthians 7.10). 

Have you changed, or in biblical speak, have you repented? You can know by whether you have sorrow for your past sins, and whether that sorrow leads you to make changes in your life. The sorrow has to be about having done the sin, not about being got.

Questions:

  • Do you have problems changing?
  • If so, why do you think that is?
