repentance leads to saintly character (Hafen)

“The great Mediator asks for our repentance not because we must ‘repay’ him in exchange for his paying our debt to justice, but because repentance initiates a developmental process that, with the Savior’s help, leads us along the path to a saintly character” 


Elder Bruce C. Hafen (The Broken Heart [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1989], 149; emphasis in original).
