Topic: Sin Verse: Psalm 51:1–51:19

Steps of Repentance

1. Turn to the one who has forgiven you.  

2. Acknowledge your sin before Him.

5 Things we do with sin:
1) We hide it
2) We disown it  
3) We minimize it
4) We spiritualize it 
5) We surrender to it.

“A man may hate sin just as a murderer hates the gallows, but this does not prove repentance. If I hate sin because of the punishment, I have not repented of sin. I merely regret that God is just. But if I can see sin as an offence against Jesus Christ and loathe myself because I have wounded him, then I have true brokenness of heart.” -Spurgeon

 3. Open your heart up for transformation.

This will involove: 
1) Purging 
2) Cleansing 
3) Restoring 

4. Share your Life Message.
