Knowing what repentance is, and actually repenting, are essential to true Christianity.
"Tomorrow may be our dying day; let this be our repenting day." In this full and impassioned
treatment, Thomas Watson begins by treating six things which comprise true repentance: (1) sight of
sin, (2) sorrow for sin, (3) confession of sin, (4) shame for sin, (5) hatred for sin, and (6) turning from sin.
Watson completes his treatise with a serious exhortation to repent, some powerful motives to
repentance, and several means to repentance.
