When I think of Repentance, the story of the woman taken in adultery come to my mind, in St. John Chapter 8 Verse's 10-11. Which says:
" 10. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11. she said, no man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."
I think of the mistakes I have made, and the promise that Jesus had made to each of us. He asks of us to turn away from the sins we have committed, which means to stop whatever sin we have done and to not repeat those mistakes again. (Like the picture above "Look not behind thee"). Doing this shows our Heavenly Father that we are sorry for what we have done. If we do this he will forget the mistakes we have made. If we follow Christ and his perfect example we can grow closer to him and our Heavenly Father.
