Looking at the whole of Holy Scripture and considering the scriptural meaning of repentance we see that it is not just a one time act but an ongoing process for the true disciple. We also see, as in the case of Hebrews 12, there are a number of factors to aid our repentance.
Repentance is not just being sorry, but heartily aligning our thoughts and ways with those of God.
Being the mother of a girl is totally different than being a boy’s mom. It’s hard for me to explain, yet it’s definitely true!

I was not even a year old in Christ when His statement on the cross, "My God! My God! Why have you forsaken me?" touched my heart.

Wrath and Judgement of God will soon come upon the inhabitants of this earth because of the cruelty, wickedness and the gross sinfulness of inhumanity to humanity. I wouldn’t be a lost Sinner and I’ll tell you the reason why. I know that my Lord is soon to come and I wouldn’t be ready to die. Repent is the Key word today!
