Christ invites us to live a life of faith and freedom through the power of the Holy Spirit. As we grow in maturity in our roles as sons and daughters of God, we increasingly become people who walk in freedom; no longer stumbling in darkness. As God’s children, we “are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord” (2 Cor. 3:18). As a result of transformation, “the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace” (Rom. 8:6).
The Creator has placed a special feature in human psyche—and that is what is called ‘repentance’. This special feature is particularly prominent in people of firm faith in God. Repentance is a wonderful means of mercy for human beings. This is referred to in the Quran (25:70) in these words: “God will change their evil deeds into good deeds.”
The transformation that this Quranic verse refers to takes place because of the sincere repentance that wells up inside a person after he does something wrong.
