Quote: The true product of repentance is a full and realistic joy, with solid happiness that does not fade away. This is doctrine married to application! So many cleave to the regrets because their repentance is only conditional. This is so true. I think we can see this in the life of Paul. I picture him pre conversion as a bitter man plagued by guilt ("kicking against the goads") and post conversion he became the apostle of joy. A person under conviction is in misery until he repents. Then the joy comes!One my favorite things to listen to is an audio compilation I have of recently saved persons giving their baptism testimonies. You can hear the joy in their voices even through their tears. It is mixed in with audio bible reading and is designed as an evangelistic tool. It's called "Freedom" and I found it on the old "fire on the altar" website. Anyways it's really powerful and is evidence of the joy of repentance.
