Matthew 3:8
Therefore produce fruit that proves your repentance [NET]

Steve used to steal a lot; he stole mobile phones, tablets, and cash from unsuspecting acquaintances and church members. When Steve repented, he cried through that night because he saw himself in the light of God’s reality. He now knew that he had wasted a great part of his youth; being a church instrumentalist but never really following Jesus. The phone he was currently using was stolen. He knew instantly that he could not keep using that phone. He had to return the phone, and this was very difficult for him to do, but he depended on God’s grace and did it. He later wrote out the names of all those he could remember stealing from; he had 16 names. Although Steve could no longer return what he had stolen from all of them, he promised to pay back in cash what he had stolen. Many who were Christians refused to collect his money and forgave him. One of the men he stole from was so impressed by his genuine repentance that he offered Steve a job. This was how Steve got a good job.

When a person repents, this means he decides to stop doing the evil things that he used to do, and he cuts off from the benefits of such. This is a function of grace.

Go into today knowing that there are fruits that prove that a person has repented. Returning what you stole, and undoing damages caused by past sinful actions is a fruit that proves your repentance. Doing these is consistent with the precepts of God. Read Luke 19:8.

Prayer:
Thank the Lord for saving you by His grace.
Ask the Lord for His grace to help you undo every evil you have done to people in the past.
Thank the Lord because He is always on your side (See Psalm 118:6). Not yet born again? Click this link: http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
