Read this verse this morning.
This is exactly what the Lord wants to see, fruit that demonstrates that the sin has been not only renounced, but forsaken. Another fruit is a broken and a contrite heart. The sacrifice and offering without a true repentance is worthless. -Chuck Smith
Real repentance will show itself in life. It has to be a matter of living repentance, not just talking repentance. -David Guzik
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart- These, O God, You will not despise. Psalm 51:17
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
