“Bring forth therefore, fruits meet for repentance”
Our opening scripture today, teaches us to bring forth the fruits of repentance. If we say we have repented from our sins, we ought to prove by the way we live, that we have truly changed our ways. To repent is not just a feeling or the remorse for wrong. It is to have a change of mind, by turning away from sin and returning to God.
Thus, it is not enough to feel bad about your sins or to acknowledge your wrong. You must go further to produce fruits worthy of repentance. You ought to produce fruits that are consistent with repentance, demonstrating new behavior that proves a change of heart, and a conscious decision to turn away from sin (Matthew 3: 8, Amplified).
Therefore, ask yourself this question today, “Am I merely sorry for my sins or am I bearing fruits meet for repentance?” Speak to the LORD and ask Him to help you bear fruits worthy of repentance beginning from today.
