Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10

Paul identifies two kinds of sorrow here. (1) There is a genuine sorrow for offenses against God that leads to repentance, which is a change of heart that causes one to turn from sin and submit to God. This type sorrow leads to spiritual salvation and a renewed relationship with God. For Paul, turning from sin and showing faith in Christ are human responsibilities in salvation. (2) In contrast, those who refuse to admit and turn from their own ways often become sorry only for the consequences of their sin. This insincere sorrow results in hardened hearts that resist the Holy Spirit and, in the end, leads to eternal death and judgement.
