Matthew 4:17 “Repent for the kingdom of Heaven is near.”
Repentance is the only way to receive the forgiveness of sins and eternal salvation in Heaven.
“I’m sorry,” are simple words. When they are said with a sincere heart they are often the first step to restore a broken relationship, including a relationship with Christ.
Repent means to be sorry and regret what you have done. You must turn your back on your sins and walk away from them. Then ask forgiveness for your sins, wrongdoing, and evil.
You must repent to restore your relationship with the Lord. If you are sorry and repent of our sins, He will forgive you.
