What is Repentance

Surrender, submission, bowing, humility, agreement: these are all words that characterize true repentance and godly sorrow (2 Corinthians 7:10). Both John, the forerunner, and Jesus sounded out the message “Repent” as they began to preach. This is the one-word message of the gospel.

“Change your mind,” says the preacher of the gospel, “agree with the King that has conquered, throw down your shotguns and swords of rebellion, submit to His rule, the new King or be destroyed under His power and wrath.”

D. Martin Lloyd-Jones wraps it up so well in this way:



Your Jericho is there!

Your Jericho is there!.

The True Christian is a warrior

“If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battlefield besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.” – Martin Luther
