  1. Repentance by works

    Repentance by works
    Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. – Revelation 2:5

    Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
    What doe's God say about repentance
    And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. – Luke 24:46-47

    When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. – Acts 11:18

  2. True repentance is 'turning from our sin'~

    True repentance is:

    1. a genuine sorrow toward God on account of sin (2 Cor. 7:9-10)

    2. an inward repugnance to sin necessarily followed by the actual forsaking of it (Matt. 3:8; Acts. 26:20; Heb 5:1)

    3. Humble self-surrender to the will and service of God
