Simply hearing this Good News is not enough.
We must admit our sinful brokenness
and stop trusting in ourselves. We don’t have the power to escape this brokenness on
our own; we need to be rescued.
We must ask God to forgive us, turning from
sin to trust only in Jesus. This is what it means to repent and believe.
receive new life through Jesus and God turns our lives in a new direction.
The Bible Says
"Repent and believe the gospel."
"For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is God's gift - not from works, so that no one can boast."
"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
