When Does Repentance Occur in the Life of a Christian? - Don Hart
When and how does repentance occur in the life of a Christian?
Don Hart explains in this video that there is a point where saving knowledge and repentance occur in a Christian’s life. There are different ways that God can save us and bring us to a saving knowledge of Himself. For example, not all of us will have a conversion experience as Paul did on his way to Damascus.
After we are saved, there is a notable difference in our lives and we are a new creature. A repentant person turns away from sinful desires and patterns and turns toward Jesus Christ. There is a single time of repentance when a person comes to Christ. But, a regenerate person needs to continually repent throughout their entire life.
Acts 3:19 (NKJV) – “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”
