But this I have against you, that you have forsaken your first love. Remember then from where you have fallen. Repent and do the deeds you did at first. If not I will come to you and remove your menorah (candlestick) from its place – unless you repent. (TLV) Revelation 2:4-5
Nosh: True repentance in the eyes of God is comprised of a broken and humble heart, realization and confession of sin and most importantly doing what is right from that point forward. Confession of sin without change in conduct is evidence before God of insincerity and is therefore unacceptable. Furthermore, it invites God’s discipline and judgment. Our actions are the true measure of our hearts condition.
