Key Verse:

I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:10-11 NIV

 

The Fruit of Repentance
By Pastor Jon Haakana

“’Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’” (Luke 13:8-9)

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10. Lent is often referred to as the “season of repentance.”

What exactly is repentance? The Greek word used for repentance literally means to make a complete change of mind. It means you recognize what you’re doing is sinful, repent of it, and turn completely away from it. It isn’t just a “get out of jail free” card you can use when you get caught. It’s a complete change. That’s what Jesus is getting at the parable of the fig tree in Luke 13:6-9, the need for us to recognize the sin in our lives, confess it, receive His forgiveness, and then stay away from the sin that would threaten to destroy us.
