What Does the Bible Say About Repentance? - Sam Waldron

What does the Bible say about repentance?

Sam Waldron explains in this video that repentance is an initial turning from sin and a subsequent turning to God. Some of the key passages that discuss repentance include John the Baptist’s call to repent in Matthew 3, Peter’s call for his countrymen to repent in Acts 2, Paul’s message on repentance in 2 Corinthians 7, and the Lord’s Prayer.

The Bible is clear that though there is an initial repentance and change of mind, repentance has another dimension. There is an ongoing lifestyle of repentance and the asking of God for forgiveness in Scripture.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
