Real Repentance

Morning Thought: How do you know you’ve repented? You know when you bear the fruits of repentance. Repentance is much deeper than saying ‘sorry’ for your sins. Repentance means dealing with the root issues that cause bad fruit in your life. After repentance, your life looks, tastes and smells different—especially your hidden life, which only God and your family see. This kind of repentance is only possible through the power of the Holy Spirit and God’s Word. John the Baptist said, “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance” (‭‭Luke‬ ‭3:8a,‬ ‭NIV‬‬).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from nine to twenty-two. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
