INTRO: We are back in the messages on repentance. Since it has been a while let me remind you where we have been. We defined repentance. It is a change of mind that leads to a change of action. We looked at the relationship between repentance and forgiveness. No repentance, no forgiveness. We looked at the importance of repentance and corporate repentance. We asked several questions regarding repentance. Is it a gift? Is repentance not possible for some? How is repentance brought about? Then we looked at words not worthy of repentance. Such words as apologize, or I'm sorry, or if, or but. And last, you can't do something nice in the place of repentance. This is now the seventh point in this series and it is that repentance gives victory over sin. If you do not desire victory over sin, you need to ask if you are truly a Christian. So we want to look at the need for victory over sin. The doom of failing to gain victory over sin, and the way of victory over sin.
