When your conscience pricks…

“For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world works death.”

– 2 Corinthians 7:10

My brother! When your conscience pricks, which of these two things does it do? After the prick, is the word of command that your will issues ‘Right about face!’ or is it ‘As you were’? Godly sorrow worketh a change of attitude, purpose, mind; the sorrow of the world leaves a man standing where he was. Ask yourselves the question: Which of the two are you familiar with?

From MacLaren Expositions Of Holy Scripture

  1. I like this practical definition of scriptural repentance. The genuine article works more effective changes in behavior as well as the removal of condemnation.
