DoesDevos: Sorry or Repentant?

“Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?”

-Romans 2:4

Do you simply feel sorry for your sin? Or do you repent? Repentance is more than simply recognizing that you did something bad. It’s turning away from it as well. Change ultimately comes from God, but there is a giant difference between saying you’re sorry for your sin and then purposely going back to it, and recognizing your sin and attempting to turn away from it. Are you just sorry? Or are you repentant?
