Jonah 3:1-10, Ps.51, Luke 11:29-32

True repentance

The call which runs like an unbroken thread all through Lent is the call to repentance. Why do I find true repentance so difficult? I am well aware of my own sinfulness, so that is not the problem. If repentance was merely a matter of regret, of being sorry for my sins, it would not be so hard. In scripture, repentance means much more, it is a call to action, to a turning round of my life, a re-turning to God, and that is a challenge indeed - for all of us!
