Repentance and Forgiveness

Here are a few scriptures on repentance and forgiveness.

“He told them, "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” Luke 24:46, 47

“I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in Him.'” Acts 26:17, 18

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,” Acts 3:19

“Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.” 2 Timothy 2:25, 26

“In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.” Acts 17:30

Repentance is preached, commanded, and granted.

Please note the results of those who have been granted repentance and who have obeyed the command to repent.

1. Forgiveness of sins
2. A place among those who are sanctified in me
3. Sins are wiped out
4. Times of refreshing
5. Knowledge of the truth
