For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”

4 What is the Aim of this Study? After believing grace, the biblical response is to repent and be baptized for forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:36-38). Repentance, however, is a powerful blessing from God that has been stripped of its potency. The Greek word for repentance, metanoia, means “after – mindset.” With this gift of ‘hindsight,’ we see clearly to take the right path… the path of living for God rather than for self. Be careful not to present repentance as a work that leads to salvation; rather, it is our awakening to come to our senses and live the way God had always intended for us. It is more than a decision; it is God allowing us to see a new worldview, which always results in the fruit of a turned, changed life.Acts 2:36-38

5 Repentan ce Repentance is a change of attitude toward sin which leads to a desire to change our behavior accordingly. The way you can tell that repentance has been granted is that the opposers begin to agree with the Scripture. They accept it, they know it to be true, and though it may involve painful adjustments on their part, they are committed to it, they follow it. "The reign of God has drawn near, but you can’t see it because you are looking the wrong way. You are expecting the wrong thing. What you think is ’God’ isn’t God at all. You have to be, as Paul says, transformed by the renewing of your mind. You have to go through a mental revolution; otherwise the reign of God will be totally hidden from you.“

9 2 Corinthians 5:14-21 Point of the Passage Christ’ love motivates us to repent; that is, to live for Him rather than for ourselves.

A t every p oint y ou h ave proved y ourselves t o be i nnocent i n t his matter ” 2 C orinthians 7:10-11 Memory Scripture

12 Luke 13:1-9 Point of the Passage Jesus preaches that without repentance, we will all perish. He likewise expects to find fruit every time there is true repentance Purposeful Question Why do you think so many people compare themselves to others? What are the consequences of not repenting? How should we respond? How should God’s grace inspire us to repent of the sins in our lives? Scriptural Background Pilate was the Roman who governed Judea. He was always afraid that Jewish crowds would disturb the peace. The Jews often thought that people suffered because they had sinned (John 9:2). Jesus had just spoken about *judgement.

13 Acts 26:15-21 Point of the Passage Jesus gives Paul the charge to “open their eyes so that “they may turn” and prove their repentance by their deeds. Repentance involves a new perspective, a turning of allegiance, and fruit. Purposeful Question What does it mean to have one’s eyes opened and turned from darkness? How would your whole life be changed if you took God’s view of sin? What deeds would demonstrate your repentance? Scriptural Background Paul gives an account of his conversion The Lord gave Paul a mission to the Gentiles Jesus sent him to be his witness of what he had seen

14 “ Godly s orrow b rings repentance t hat leads t o s alvation and l eaves n o r egret, but w orldly s orrow brings d eath.

15 2 Corinthians 7:8-11 Point of the Passage There are two types of sorrow: worldly and godly. Godly sorrow leads to the repentance & worldly sorrow to death Godly sorrow produces change within you Purposeful Question How can feeling sorrow over our sin be good? Have you previously confused sorrow(s) with true repentance? How would your life change if godly sorrow was produced in your life toward your sins? Scriptural Background Paul had challenged the Corinthians on their sin His letter had hurt them but it led to them to examine their lives and to repent

16 2 Timothy 2:24-26 Point of the Passage God wants you to be set free from that captivity. Do not neglect this gift that God grants us. Purposeful Question Has God already opened your eyes thru the Scriptures? Can you now see the truth? How will you respond to God’s gift for your life? Scriptural Background Christians are God’s servants We must be kind in the way we interact with everyone. God’s desire is to use us to lead others to a repented life
