What is Repentance?



As a brand new Christian in the mid-70s, I couldn’t get enough of the Bible, Church sermons, Fellowship gatherings & Christian books. There was so much to learn and understand! When I first learned about the meaning of repentance I loved James Taylor’s music. “Fire & Rain” was a favorite song and to this day when I hear that song I’m reminded of repentance. This one line says “…When the cold wind blows it’ll turn your head around”. That’s what I believe God does when we are resisting the changes we need to make. He allows “the cold wind” to blow until we accept that we need to repent and change direction… Also Known As “it’ll turn your head around! “.
