True Repentance

"True repentance is a change of direction. It involves turning away from sin and toward God---replacing sinful actions with righteous ones. Genuine repentance springs from heartfelt sorrow over sin because it is against God and then leads to real change in the way a person thinks and lives."
-Joshua Harris

Repentance is first of all a door of despair before it is the path to life.

Fantastic quote by Harris. Effective repentance is how it affects your mindset after the sorrow. Good stuff!
