Catechism #88-89

Question #88: What is involved in genuine repentance or conversion?

Answer: Two things: the dying-away of the old self, and the coming-to-life of the new (Rom. 6:1-11; 2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 4:22-24; Col. 3:5-10).

Question #89: What is the dying-away of the old self?

Answer: It is to be genuinely sorry for sin, to hate it more and more, and to run away from it (Ps. 51:3-4, 17; Joel 2:12-13; Rom. 8:12-13; 2 Cor. 7:10).
