Repent & believe

Jesus said in Mark 1: 15 "Repent and believe in the gospel"

What does it mean to Repent?
True repentance involves a change of mind about sin and a willingness to turn away from it.
Sin is worse than any sickness, it has eternal consequences.
Cancer may kill the physical body but sin has the potential to cause destruction of the soul forever. That's why it is so important to turn away from sin. If sin & its consequences were to be a simple matter, God wouldn't have sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.

The gospel is the good news about Jesus.
Jesus came to save us from our sins. He came to pay the penalty for our past sins, to save us from our present temptations and to save us from the presence of sin in the future.

So let's rejoice in the fact that Jesus has come, let's surrender our entire life to him trusting in his love for us. Amen!
