Reaching People… Biblical repentance => more than just an agreement that what we are doing or have done is bad, it moves us to action. Biblical repentance is more than altering our thinking a little to the left or right, it is thinking differently. Biblical repentance is a call to transformation.
Reaching People… Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is -- His good, pleasing, and perfect will.”
Reaching People… 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
