GREAT QUOTES on REPENTANCE

"There was a day when I died; died to self, my opinions, preferences, 
tastes and will; died to the world, its approval or censure; died to 
the approval or blame even of my brethren or friends; and since 
then I have studied only to show myself approved unto God." 
- George Mueller

"Many mourn for their sins that do not truly repent of them, weep 
bitterly for them, and yet continue in love and league with them." 
- Matthew Henry

"True repentance is no light matter. It is a thorough change of heart 
about sin, a change showing itself in godly sorrow and humiliation - 
in heartfelt confession before the throne of grace - in a complete 
breaking off from sinful habits, and an abiding hatred of all sin. Such 
repentance is the inseparable companion of saving faith in Christ." 
- J. C. Ryle

"Unless you have made a complete surrender and are doing his 
will it will avail you nothing if you've reformed a thousand times 
and have your name on fifty church records." 
- Billy Sunday

"Repentance, as we know, is basically not moaning and remorse, 
but turning and change." 
- J.I. Packer

"People who cover their faults and excuse themselves do not have 
a repentant spirit." 
- Watchman Nee
