And then repeating same act again?
Repantance must come through our inner heart through the touch of Holy Spirit that we feel we did something wrong against God and His words and sinned .....
Holy Spirit will help you and me to make true repantance of our sins when we allow Holy Spirit to be active and work in us.
When we fully commit our lives to Christ and give ourselves to God and when we are filled with Holy Spirit ....He Himself will work for us and leads us to righteousness of God.
We are not our own but of Him now through Holy Spirit in us we be transformed to the new life in Christ step by step and leave our sinful nature....all what we need to do is to let the Spirit of God guide our lives and let Him make decisions of our lives......we shall live no more but we were already crucified with Christ with our sins and now on We live in and for Christ and we are transformed in the nature of Christ leaving all our sins and sinful nature .....Holy spirit will help and strengthen us to do this to keep us away from every sinful act that we used to do in the passed. Now we belong to Christ and we live no more of ourselves but Christ lives in us.
Galatians2:20......we are now new born of Christ and baptized in Holy Spirit we are not of our own.....
