“Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is near.” -Jesus

Jesus calls people to repentance. Repentance is not just:
  • Being sorry.
  • Feeling bad.
  • Wishing you could be different.
  • Wanting to stop sinful actions.
Repentance is turning around and taking a new course. When Jesus called people to repentance, the call was to be a new person. To take hold of the “new creation” and leave behind the life that was controlled by sin and self. To live the story of God in their life rather than the story of Adam.
Repentance is kind of a big deal. True repentance changes a person’s life completely. It alters it’s direction. It is beautiful. And it is found at the cross. So lead people to the cross. Go to the cross yourself. And turn in the direction of Jesus.
“Give me Christ or else I die!”
