What repentance is and what repentance is not.

Part 4 – As we continue in our series on repentance this morning we begin to look at Godly sorrow. Truth penetrates like a sword and is painful which can cause Godly sorrow. This sorrow is a good thing because it leads us to repentance. Repentance toward God is a good thing because it opens the door to the resurrection graces of Christ manifesting in our lives on a greater and greater level.
