Nibble of Bread: Matthew 3:2

September 10, 2012

Repent

Matthew 3:2

“Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”

In order for Salvation to be made complete there must be forgiveness, through redemption which is formed from the seed of repentance (Luke 24:47). The above verse is the words of John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus. John’s message was clear to me, in order for your heart to be receptive of the message of Jesus you must repent. According to the Websters definition on, ‘repent’ it is to: turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life; to feel regret or contrition, to change one’s mind.

This definition may be different from what some of us view repentance as, but I know this definition is completely in-line with how scripture calls us to change and live. As long as we have unrepentant sin, there will always be a wall between us and God. In order to put God first in our lives we must knock down these walls. Some of our walls may be like the Great Wall of China, others may be little walls around our garden. Either way we have to knock them down, brick by brick. Be honest with yourself (Romans 12:3). Then we may begin to truly taste and see how Great our God really is.
