Session 2: Repentance – (March 2008)
Matthew 3:2 “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is near”
Acts 3:19 “Repent then and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Key verse to learn
We are conveying that as Christians we are to repent, change, turn away from sins, from things that are wrong before God. This will include action (Luke 19 – Zachaeus gave back). Our minds are changed, our mindset is changed (Romans 12:2 – be transformed by the renewing of your mind)
We repent, turn from: sex outside marriage, substance abuse, anger, violence, hatred, bitterness, witchcraft, bad language.
Introduce concept of Kingdom of God – we are now in another kingdom – we have moved from kingdom of darkness to kingdom of light.
Attitude of repentance to stay with you always.
