Acts 3:19 Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.

 

2. The Time for Repentance

 

2 Corinthians 6:2 For God says,“At just the right time, I heard you.  On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.

 

3. Christ's Call to Sinners

 

 Luke 5:32 I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.”

 

4. What True Repentance Involves

 

a. Acknowledgment of the enormity of sin

Psalms 51:4 Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just.

 

b.  Godly sorrow for sin

2 Corinthians 7:9 Now I am glad I sent it, not because it hurt you, but because the pain caused you to repent and change your ways. It was the kind of sorrow God wants his people to have, so you were not harmed by us in any way.

 

c. Forsaking Sin

Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them.  Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.

 

Ezekiel 18:31 Put all your rebellion behind you, and find yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O people of Israel?

 

Matthew 3:8 Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God.

 

5. God's Gracious Assurance

 

Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet,  I will make them as white as snow.   Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.  

 

Ezekiel 18:21 But if wicked people turn away from all their sins and begin to obey my decrees and do what is just and right, they will surely live and not die.

 

Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

 

1 John 1:9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
