Good morning people who think differently after moments of sin
Matthew 26:74-75 (NIV) Then he began to call down curses, and he swore to them, “I don’t know the man!” Immediately a rooster crowed. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: “Before the rooster crows, you will disown Me three times.” And he went outside and wept bitterly.
"How do you respond when you have sinned?"
The truth is, we all 'miss God's mark of perfection' (the literal translation of the word 'sin'). Therefore the question is not "Have you sinned?", but "How have you responded?"
Repentance is the only right answer for moments of sin.
"But what does repentance mean?"
It literally means 'to think differently'. It is not just about feeling sorry, but about thinking differently. A different way of thinking will result in a different way of living. It's our thinking that needs to be transformed. This is the essence of repentance.
