Many people express remorse when they’ve done something wrong, but remorse is only the beginning. It needs to be followed with repentance to be truly sincere. You see, repentance is deliberately choosing to change the hurtful behavior to something positive. But none of us can make someone else be repentant—that’s the Holy Spirit’s task. Our task is to pray for those who are bound up in sinful behavior and to set a holy example for them to follow. Thus we lead the lost soul to knowledge of the truth. Such an awesome responsibility and privilege we have to shine Jesus in a needy world. I pray we boldly accept the challenge.
