“Let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him.” Isaiah 55:7. When we become aware that we’re plunging into sin we must immediately stop by ceasing to do evil. But that’s not enough. We need to confess our sin and forsake it, receive by faith God’s mercy and pardon, and go on with the Lord. Then, as we place ourselves under the authority of God’s Word, we will be back on the path of righteousness with a mind at peace and a heart filled with joy. Repentance not only rejects the wrong but returns to the right.
