Repentance - 3
How important is repentance anyway?
What Does The Bible Say?
Luke 13:3 says... "I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish."
Luke 15:10 says... "In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."
II Peter 3:9 says... "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
From these scriptures, we learn:
•1. Jesus uses the strongest language when He says, "Unless you repent, you will perish."
•2. Jesus also said, "In Heaven there is great rejoicing when one sinner repents."(Turns to God)
•3. Peter tells us the reason God has delayed His judgment is He loves you and wants you to repent.
