What Life Is Like After Repentance

Updated on October 9, 2016

When I woke up one morning and knew the transition was final I said to the Lord:

Hallelujah! finely made it to ya.

Life is anew for sure. Like the Temptations says “keep on a walkin’ don’t look back.”

Life is done only in the righteous light. Like what Earth, Wind & Fire would say, “After the love is gone, what used to be right is wrong and love is lost and found.”

Repentance gives life a whole new meaning. You shine your love on people. You do good things that you did not use to do. You want to speak to everyone but most people are reluctant to speak. They look at you like something is wrong with you. Sometimes though when you’re feeling fresh and adamant about speaking then at least you have the initiative to speak. As the Bible says in scripture you are new creature, old thing are become new. It’s a beautiful thing to have gained a new life. That is considered a miraculous thing. No one knows how good it is until after arriving there. You've gained a closer relationship with the Father and the Son. You are living a spiritual life. You are living a Christ like life. The only things that you may desire to do that you used to do it is to have companionship, financial gain, realization of dreams and pleasure with God. You would have a tendency to want to be around other Christ like people. You have more heart and of course, more love and more faith. Everything you do is Godly. You can’t stand the sound a foul language. You don’t tolerate violence. Let alone commit it. You will have a tendency to become a prayer warrior. Your enjoyment becomes more of Godly interests. You don’t worry about anything. It amazes you that you become humble and polite. Things that should stick with you automatically do. It becomes hard to remember bad things of the past. You have accepted Jesus as your personal Savior. You will be saved. Therefore, you will have a clear understanding of what God, the Bible and life are all about. You can appreciate a glorious peace of mind.

The desire for intimacy never changes. However, you will have those desires for only the right person in your life. You will continue to operate according to your experiences. Things that you have learned you won’t forget. You will have a tendency to live much better.

Never Too Old to Repent

Repentance is a Transformation from Living in Sin in to Living in Righteousness of God

Repentance is symbolized by baptism (being immersed in water that is dying to sin and rising back up to the new life). The greatest thing about repentance is keeping it real for the rest of your life. Repentance is no good if you fall back out of it repeatedly. I don’t know how many times you are allowed to fall out of it but eventually you must adapt to it for it to work solidly in your life. Until it comes to that point of being solid, a person may slip and fall back sometimes but official repentance is invaluable. Life is as the Bible pronounces it to be. As you live it you feel it. You feel justified in everything you receive and achieve.

Be Disciplined For Repentance

In my opinion, a person should not get baptized until old enough to understand what repentance is all about. A baby certainly should not get baptized. A baby may get blessed but not baptized. A person over age 12 should be able to express their sincerity for getting baptized and therefore, repenting.

There are many blessings that come with repentance. Those blessings are in control of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a wonderful guide. There is no need to worry about anything because things will fall in place as they should. Dreams may come true. Goals will be met. Big and small things will get accomplished as you cruise through such beautiful daily life.

      For sure, you have an absolute understanding of repentance. I started walking with the Lord when I was a child, but it was when I was an adult that I finally woke up and made a decision to walk the straight and narrow road and experience all the thing you mention here. It is definitely a life worth living.

      In our Christian life repentance is the key to having a good relationship with God.

      A great read and you said it all here. A word I don't think of much and enlightened me so well.

      My father, as pastor of our church, believed a person should be at least twelve years old before being baptized. It makes sense, although some would understand the meaning much earlier. I agree with your statement I don’t know how many times you are allowed to fall out of it but eventually you must adapt to it for it to work solidly in your life." At some point, one must make a permanent change for the better. Great article and inspiring to read.

      My best understanding of repent as a word is; to turn around. I have noticed in my half century of hiking to stop and turn around on the trail and look where I just walked. Where you have been is seen in a different perspective and it is rewarding. A new light. And in fact a relief in knowing you do not have to trudge that route again.

      This is a wonderful hub.
