To repent is to give Jesus your life, not half of it or even 90% of it. To start living for His cause. To make Him and His commandments your purpose in life. To say, “I repent from wanting to build my own kingdom, my own legacy, my own purpose in life. I repent from being my own lord. I give you everything LORD. Have mercy on me and save my soul through your only Son, the Almighty Savior, Jesus Christ of Nazareth!”
To repent is to abandon your own plans in life; to abandon your ambitions; to know that you are THIS MOMENT in a GRAVE and HORRIFIC DANGEROUS place!
Stop playing “Christianity” and repent. The end is already here. What does it profit you if you gain the whole world and lose your own soul? What does it profit your family if you left them all the money in the world and didn’t endeavour to see them saved?
Would anyone drowning want anything else but to hold onto the dangling rope before his eyes? Unless you forsake all, you cannot have Jesus. He is the Rope. He is the Way, the truth and the life. To live you MUST die to everything else - all the idols you’ve set up in your heart!
— Galatians 6:9
