The Bible and its vocabulary: the repentance

"Thus regret and be converted, so that your sins are erased." Acts 3:19

"God's kindness pushes you to the repentance." Romain 2:4

      This word tends to disappear from the contemporary religious language. He is nevertheless an important part in the Bible because all the men have to regret. There is no other path to enter into a relationship with God. The Gospel announced by the apostle Paul concerned these two points: "the repentance to God and the faith in our Lord Jésus Christ" (Acts 20:21).

      The repentance is God's work in the soul. It is not a simple change of outside behavior. The real repentance begins when I recognize the moral disorder in which I am by nature. It is the awakening of the consciousness that turns to God. The man who regrets concerns a sincere judgment the evil which he was able to make. It is not maybe about a particularly grave sin, but about the whole life where God had no place. The repentance shows itself by the confession of our moral state to God, because it is him whom we offended (Psalm 51:4).

      In the repentance, there is also a light of hope, a call to the divine mercy which we perceive, the feeling that it is "God's kindness which pushes us to the repentance". God does not want the condemnation of the sinner, but he can grant him his grace, his forgiveness, exactly because Jesus concerned the cross all the judgment which deserved our conduct to him.

      The repentance pulls a complete change in the conduct of believer: it is the conversion. She brings in the heart the enjoyment to be in accordance with God, and participates even in the enjoyment of the sky (Luc 15:7).
