What is Repentance and Faith?
To repent means we turn away from our sin and turn to God (Acts 3:19). When we repent it is by God’s help that we realize that we are sinful and need forgiveness. So the Holy Spirit helps us turn from it and go to God for forgiveness. How do we receive this forgiveness? It comes through faith. Faith is trusting in all that the Lord Jesus Christ has done for us. Faith is only in the Lord Jesus Christ because only He can save sinners (Acts 4:12).
Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out Acts 3:19
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God Ephesians 2:8
