  1. An opportune time
    • Repentance is when the exceeding sinfulness of our sin against God becomes apparent to us
  2. A gift of opportune time
    • A person is unable to repent unless God gives the ability and when He gives the ability it must be taken
  3. Admitting that you have done wrong
    • Admitting that you have sinned against God first and then against people
  4. Change your mind
    • Repentance means to change your thinking, rethink or think again
  5. Changing the direction of your life
    • Returning home, to turn back, walk toward the Father
