There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships.

The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 9: What is Repentance?

Today we want to look at the area of repentance. In the proclamation of the gospel today, this is often misunderstood or completely overlooked. In doing so, it leaves a great weakness in our initial foundation in our walk with God.

• Repentance is our beginning place. It was the beginning message of:
o John the Baptist (Matt. 3:1,2)
o Jesus (Matt 4:17)
o Peter (Acts 2:38) Repentance was commanded
o Paul (Acts 20:21) Repentance towards God and faith towards our Lord Jesus
• Repentance (to change one’s mind, to turn)
o Includes thought, word, and deed (2 Cor. 7:11)
o Not just feelings, tears, or regret
o John said to “Bring forth fruits of repentance” (Matt. 3:8)
o Repentance is towards God (we have sinned against Him) (Acts 20:21)
• Confession of sin is specific, not just general
o I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful to forgive”
o Turning from the sin by the grace of God
o Restitution if possible (Luke 3:10)
• Christ came to bring a real salvation from sin (I John 3:4-9)
o That our sins may be “taken away) (vs 5)
o To destroy the works of the devil (vs 8)
• The command to all men everywhere is to repent (Acts 17:30)

God has provided a real salvation from death, sin, and the expression of sin (sins) that the righteousness of God might be revealed in these vessels of clay
