If repentance of sin is a work, do you believe that when a saved person confesses his sins and repents, that he cannot be immediately restored to God in fellowship unless he fulfills a work first?

Repentance of sin is a work IF it is defined as turning from the activities of unrighteousness to the activities of righteousness.

However, repentance of sin is NOT a work if it is defined as turning from the enjoyment of unrighteousness to broken-heartedness before the One who delivers from unrighteousness.

(Note: My own position on the matter would be the second definition.)
