RCCG Sunday School Teens Teachers Manual 24 July 2022 | INTRODUCTION

 Repentance is the act of evaluating one’s actions and feeling sorry about them and taking a definite step to turn away from such. It is a commitment that proves a change for the better. David is a good biblical example of someone who genuinely repented of his sins.

He adopted the five steps of repentance which are:
1. Acknowledging the sin
2. Confessing the sin
3. Asking forgiveness
4. Turning away from the sin
5. Restoring/correcting the wrong done.

Steps to repentance, using our text;

This is represented by the story Nathan told David. vs 1-4.

3. Avoid defensiveness and allow the word to match up with what you have done. vs 7-9.
4. Feel bad about what you have done. vs 13.
