REPENTANCE IS A MINDSET CHANGE WHERE YOU TURN TO GOD. Once you have recognized the error of your ways, Start by confessing your sins to God. Be honest with yourself and Him (He already knows) the confession is your way of acknowledging you have went against the Lord and have a willingness to get it right. Bible declares when we confess our sins to God, He is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. The mind to do right is first step. You will need to ask the Lord for help because you can not keep yourself from sinning without His help. He has given us that help in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because His blood covers us and His power the Holy Ghost abiding in us is the enabler to keep us from going back to sin when we follow His lead and make choices based in the righteousness of God. Use the tool of repentance skillfully in the Lord, He gave it to us to use in the time of needing to be made free from sin, but not as a crutch to continue in sin.
