Luke 13, 5

A fundamental doctrine.  John and Christ and the Apostles preached it.

1.  Who must repent?  All who have sinned.  “All have sinned.”  Hence all must repent and turn to God.

2.  What is repentance?

(1)  Must be conviction of sin or man can’t repent.

(2)  Confession of sin–all must be confessed–nothing hidden.  Else one’s repentance is not genuine.  It is sin that disposes one to cover up his faults.

(3)  Forsaking of sin.  Pluck out right eye, cut off right-hand–hold on to nothing wrong.

(4)  Restitution of injuries if possible and forgiveness of others who may have wronged one.  Get right with man and God.

(5)  Then trust Jesus to pardon all and he will forgive most wonderfully and freely.

3.  But all must repent, or perish eternally.  If man holds on to sin it will ruin him eternally–Prov. 1, 31.
