Repentance is “believing with absolute knowledge” that without the saving power of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, the wrath of God will consume you utterly.
Repentance is turning to God asking for His mercy by allowing you salvation through the cross of His Almighty Son.
Repentance is acknowledging the disastrous consequences of your sins and believing that there is no way out of sin except the blood of Jesus Christ shed for you on the cross.
Repentance is believing in the absolute LOVE of God, that even-though you are an undeserving sinner, He loved you to give up (sacrifice) His greatest love, His only beloved Son, for you, so that you may live and not perish in hell.
Repentance is NOT “working” to stop certain sins that you think will get you to hell. It is a complete turn around BECAUSE you have believed and now have Christ working in you to will and to do. Without the power of the Holy Spirit there is no repentance.
Jesus is the Hero who destroyed the bondage of sin and death. He rose victorious over death on the third day of His crucifixion, showing that true LOVE can NEVER die. He lives forevermore and in Him alone is there salvation and eternal life.
Whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:15-18 NKJV)
