Question: "Why can't I be sorry for my sins? Months ago when I walked with God, A single tiny sin would make me cry of shame. How can I turn back to my past strong relationship with God"

1 Timothy speaks about how to maintain a good conscience. It’s mainly by devoting yourself to sound doctrine (1, 4), by rejecting false teaching (2–4), and by practicing godly living (5–6). False teaching will destroy and desensitize your conscience toward sin. Your conscience needs to always be informed by the truth of God’s word, and then you need to practice what is says by fleeing from ungodly living to do what is right.

Next, obey your conscience. If your Bible-informed conscience tells you something is wrong, and you go ahead and do it anyway, that will defile and desensitize your conscience to sin (Romans 14, 14:23). So always listen to what your Bible-informed conscience is telling you.

Thirdly, make sure you confess your sins to God (1 John 1:8 - 2:2). On the basis of Christ’s atonement for our sins, God can remain faithful and just to cleanse and forgive you of your sin when you agree with Him that what you did was wrong. Hebrews shows that the atonement of Christ can cleanse your conscience from dead works, to serve the living God (Hebrews 9:14). Maintain close fellowship with God, by confessing your sin, and by receiving the cleansing and forgiveness that comes through faith in Christ’s atonement.

Finally, understand what repentance means. Repentance is when you change your mind and behavior, not necessarily when you feel sorry. There should be godly sorrow over sin, but that sorrow is what “leads to repentance”. The goal should not be to just feel sorry, but to change your behavior. You can always change your behavior, even if you don’t think you feel sorry enough. Worldly sorrow leads to death, but godly sorrow leads to a change of mind and behavior (2 Corinthians 7:10).
