Myriads fear “repentance.” Their eyes are on what they have to leave behind. This is a huge error. Repentance is more turning to God than turning away from sin.
You are wrong to think you have to leave sin to come to God. First come to God, and He will help you to leave sin. In fact, without His help, you are helpless to ever escape the chains of bondage.
Repentance is as easy as falling in love. I don’t know to many cases where labored hard to fall in love. When I fell in love, it wasn’t a question of trying to find time for Dianna. I automatically neglected other things because I just wanted to be with her. So too with God.
As you get to know Him, you won’t have to strain to leave the things that seem so important to you now.
This is true, but there does need to be recognition that the past was bad, or there isn’t a real turning to God. Augustine said, “Love God and do as you please.” That too is true, but it is a test of our love.
