The Fundamentals: Repentance: A Difficult Commandment
Repentance takes place in our hearts. Forgiveness takes place in the heart of God. Repentance is frequently accompanied by a strong feeling of relief and joy. We rejoice that we have changed our minds from unrighteousness to righteousness – from evil to good – from rebellion against God to submission to God. That good feeling is frequently confused with forgiveness because we feel good about it. However, we must remember that forgiveness takes place in the mind of God, not in our minds and we are not empowered to read God’s mind. Instead, we must rely on his Biblical revelation. Changing our minds is not easy to do but it is necessary.
