Goooooood Morning Everyone! We have seen God's part in our salvation, and man's part in hearing and believing. Now, let's look at man's part in REPENTANCE!
God offers us the opportunity to repent, to change our life, in order that He may provide salvation to us. But it's up to man to accept or reject that offer. 2 Cor 7:10 tells us that godly sorrow produces repentance which leads us to salvation. In Acts 2:38, people were instructed to repent and be baptized for the remission of their sins. Repentance is a change of heart and mind in which one turns from sin and does what God says (Matt 21:28-29). Unless we make this decision to follow Jesus and obey Him, God will not save us. God offers forgiveness and the way unto salvation, and man needs to repent. Now that's something to think about! May heaven's blessings be upon each of you today, Vic.
