Repentance Involves Receiving The Holy Spirit's Empowering

A changed life involves being surrendered completely to Jesus Christ as LORD of every area of life. This is reflected in changes in the person's behaviour......

• s/he is surrendered to the Lordship of Christ

• s/he is filled with the Holy Spirit's 'streams of living water' that Jesus promised in JOHN 7:37-39  

• s/he wants to go God's way now instead of his/her old rebellious way

• s/he has a new love for God and for others

•The Word of God  -  The Bible  -  has suddenly come alive as s/he reads it

2 CORINTHIANS 5:17  This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
