WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO REPENT OF? Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; The Bible tells us that we are all sinners. That means that we have broken God’s law. 1John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. We have all stolen, or lied, or broken one or more of the commandments of God. This makes us guilty of the whole law of God and places us under the imminent judgement of a holy and just God. James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. We are in danger of being judged by God and sentenced to an eternity in hell. But this is not what God would have for us. God has designed that everyone may be forgiven for breaking His law. He has put in place a method to redeem each of us from this impending judgement. It is by turning from our sin (repentance) and turning to God’s way, that we can be saved from this future judgement. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. God has sent Jesus to make a way for our sins to be forgiven. The Law has been completely fulfilled by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
