What are the FRUITS of Repentance?

Bring forth the FRUITS of Repentance. If there’s no Godly Sorrow, there’s really no Repentance to Salvation.

2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly SORROW worketh REPENTANCE to SALVATION not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. 11 For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

What are the FRUITS of Repentance? They are listed in the above New Testament Scripture. Here are definitions for each:

Sorrow – grief, annoyance, sadnessCarefulness – haste, eagerness, diligence to change and do rightClearing of yourselves – reasoned statement (apologia, speech, written document) on how and why you sinned, and how and why you will change and do God’s CommandmentsIndignation – irritation, vexation, angerFear – terror, dread of what is wrongVehement Desire – longing, strong need for what’s rightZeal – excitement, heat, fervor in spirit, pursuing, defending the truthRevenge – vengeance and punishment, not against people but against deception and spiritual principalitiesClear – pure, venerable, respectable, cleanThat’s real new testament repentance, that’s when you have proved yourself to be clear of a matter. Without the Fruits of Repentance, All you have is self-righteousness.
