I will go home to my father and say, “Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son. Please take me on as a hired servant.”
Luke 15:18-19 NLT
The genuine repentance implies the conscious action to recognize that we have sinned against God, and that we are not in position to demand Him anything more than His forgiveness and mercy.
