-Our family has been out of our apartment for about two months now. I haven’t said much about this but we’ve been doing some remodel in our apartment this summer so we’ve been living in Christina’s parents apartment.

Three Types of Repentance
1. Repentance to Salvation
For having sorrow in a godly way results in repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regrets. But the sorrow of the world produces death. (2Co 7:10)
2. Repentance from a Particular Sin
I am afraid that when I come my God may again humble me before you and that I may have to grieve over many who formerly lived in sin and have not repented of their impurity, sexual immorality, and promiscuity that they once practiced. (2Co 12:21)
3. Repentance as a Way of Life
Do not be conformed to this world, but continually be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may be able to determine what God’s will is—what is proper, pleasing, and perfect. (Rom 12:2)
