The  Long  Road  Home
by Rob Lamont

Repentance involves
 1. Recognising that we have sinned.
 2. Taking responsibility for our sin.
 3. Asking God to forgive us.
 4. Asking God to help us not to do that sin again.
 5. Seeking to do what is right rather than what is wrong.

Read the following passage
1 John 1:8 "If we say that we have not sinned, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in our hearts. 9But if we tell God about our sins, he can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make God a liar, and his message is not in our hearts. 2:1 My children, I am writing this so that you will not sin. But if you do sin, Jesus Christ always does the right thing, and he will speak to the Father for us. 2Christ is the sacrifice that takes away our sins and the sins of all the world's people."

1. When you sin who do like to blame.
 a.  Parents
 b.  Other family member
 c.  Your upbringing
 d.  Work/ School
 e.  Self
 f. Other

2. Why is it so hard to take responsibility for our actions and sins?

3. What must we do to be forgiven by God? Why does God forgive us?

4. The  following Psalm (Spiritual song) was written by King David afer a time of major sinning. What guideline does it give to us to ask God for forgiveness?
51:4 Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge.
51:5 Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
51:6 Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.
51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
51:11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.
51:12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
51:13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will turn back to you.
51:14 Save me from bloodguilt, O God, the God who saves me, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.
51:15 O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
