What is True Repentance?

Onward Christian Soldiers #10 | with Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: Luke 13:1-5: “There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”

The issue of repentance is a very important concept in Scripture. The word “repent” occurs 36 times in the New Testament. In Matthew chapter 3, John the Baptist called out “Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand!” In the book of Revelation, we see Jesus Christ commanding a wayward church to repent. And between those two points, we have Paul and Peter calling out multiple times, ‘Repent, Repent, Repent’.
