Repentance finishes with change – conversion. How will I now live and be different? With each of the specific sins connected to each of the specific Commands I have broken I will seek God for a counter move, a contrary action from a contrary motive deposited in me by His Spirit.
I cannot change on my own. I accept grace by faith for pardon; I also accept grace by faith for transformation. Each confessed sin which I share with my confessor will also meet a commitment of new action, new life, revealed then empowered by the Spirit in me.
“Lord, keep me true to these promises!”
