This Repentance Bible post is an explanation of how people really act and behave in the real world.
First of all, you need to understand what salvation is before you get into the repentance part so read my post on “Salvation.” It explains salvation in a very easy to understand way.
You can repent without believing but you can’t believe without repenting. Repenting in the Greek is “metanoia” or “change of mind.” You change your mind toward believing God.
A change of thinking, which means a person realizes it is their sin which separates them from God, then realizes that Jesus Christ is the only provision for the payment of that sin. This is true repentance toward God for salvation.
You can also repent after you’re saved when you have done a wrong. According to the Hebrew we are to “turn away from our sin.” There is no need in repenting unless there is a “turning away” from your sin. Can God bless a person that will not turn from their sin? Absolutely not!
The whole idea of repenting is to draw closer to God. More importantly, how could we expect results without repenting? Just do a turn around and draw closer to God.
