Becoming Familiar With Repentance

“He that desires to be a true Christian must be experimentally acquainted with repentance and remission of sins. These are the principle things in saving religion. To belong to a pure church, and to hear the gospel, and receive the sacraments are the great privileges: but are we converted? Are we justified? If not, we are dead before God.
“Happy is the Christian who keeps these two points continually before his eyes! The brightest saint is the man who has the most heart-searching sense of his own sinfulness, and the liveliest sense of his own complete acceptance in Christ.”
~ J.C. Ryle
Day by Day with J.C. Ryle, “Ministry” (Preaching), 188.

  1. I agree! The Father calls who are His. His Son Yusuhua made this happen, and the church are the followers of Yusuhua. He stated No man needs to go to the Father except through Him only. As,much as man follows He will not be,sin free until he has been taken. But we follow the Spirit which leads us away from sin. If we do commit a sin, we ask forgiveness right away and learn from it. Its why the Father let His only Son who is blameless, make it possible to be saved. Amen
