It is God’s will for you to repent of your sins. This means to change your mind about your sin, to recognize you have sinned against God, to have sorrow for having sinned against God, and to hate your sin knowing that your sins are what Christ died for on the cross.
It means without repentance you cannot be saved. Why? Repentance gives you the desire to be saved.
Luke 13:3, “except you repent, you will all likewise perish.”
Romans 3:23, “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
2 Corinthians 7:10, “for godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation.”
1 Corinthians 15:3, “that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.”
It is God’s will for you to have faith in Jesus Christ. This means to have faith in the gospel and to believe that Christ died for your sins. Christ took your place and substituted himself in your place to receive God’s wrath for your sin so you might be saved. The shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross has satisfied a holy God as punishment for your sin. Your faith in this will set you free forever from the penalty of sin. You will now be free to enjoy a relationship with God as His adopted child and be eternally free from the consequences of sin.
