A fresh take on Repentance


Watch the video to see how to tie this printable with an airplane analogy that will help your class really grasp this fresh take on repentance.

It’s easy to think that sin is merely a sinful action and repenting is stopping the sinful action. If you think about it is in the LEAVING our state of love or who we really are that is the sin (watch video to help explain). It Is forgetting who we really are. When we feel out of alignment we are in blame or shame and if we stay there and believe it and operate from that state, that is when our behavior will reflect that feeling. And that behavior is what is typically considered the “sin”

We don’t sin bc we are bad, I believe sin comes bc we BELIEVE we are bad or less then. That belief and feeling THEN drive us to behaviors that do NOT honor who we truly are.

Ok example here. Let’s say we don’t feel we are enough (the first step out of alignment is believing something not true about yourself) and that in that state of lack we are actually MORE driven to PROVE to everyone and ourselves we ARE enough.  THE LIE feels bad and now we need to prove to everyone that we are not that lie! #weirdbrainlogic

We are more likely to do things to get attention and approval, to create all sorts of dysfunction and disorders, we want to find love in all the places it doesn’t exist, we want to cheat, lie, steal, to get our way to be seen and heard. 

All to disprove a lie, to begin with. 

Instead of all that we can settle down and believe in the TRUTH! The truth will set you free, in fact. And the truth is surprisingly kind and loving. 

The truth reminds us to take full accountability and responsibility for our thoughts feelings and actions. To own it all as our creation, to stay out of blame and shame and begin to create from a place of truth and love instead. 

The truth is WE ARE ENOUGH. Believing the truth and feeling the love behind it is liberating! We can relax and bring our tired souls to rest. 

When we believe and truly feel our identity it as children of God and we feel that immense love and truth…guess what happens?

Our behavior changes.

We no longer identify with the bad feelings which tell us we are bad and sinful, we see ourselves as God sees us. As our true selves: abundant, GOOD honest true peaceful, and joyful. God sees us in our perfection and wholeness. When we can view ourselves in our own wholeness our BEHAVIOR begins to MATCH that truth.

This truth has literally changed EVERYTHING for me and my life. I when I feel bad, I give myself grace and know that I can return to my true state of love again. It pulls me out of the blame and shame. It helps take the simple steps to recover and return the the delicious state Heavenly state of having the Spirit of God with me again.
