    That is why David, after committing adultery with Bathsheba and having her husband murdered, said, “I have sinned against the Lord” (2 Sam. ). He wrote (Ps. ), “Against You, You only, I have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight.” Certainly David had sinned against Bathsheba and even more so against her husband, Uriah.   Therefore, whenever you hear the Word of God repent and accept it.

Jesus told the church in Ephesus that they must repent of their poor witness (i.e., leaving their first love), or else He will end the church's.   Why do you fail to recognize the words of Jesus in Luke , where he tells us to “PROCLAIM REPENTANCE FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS”?

      After committing a sin, I would pray to the Lord and wish to repent, and sometimes I would even hate myself and cry bitter tears. But whenever I encountered a similar situation again, I would be unable to stop myself from sinning again and rebelling against God. As a man, he can offer sacrifice on behalf of men. This is why we are able to be saved, because the atonement of Christ is offered on our behalf. Therefore, even if Satan were to repent of his great sins, (which it is not possible) he must have an atonement that would be sufficient for angels. Since Jesus became a man to die for men, there.

This is why we need to repent. We need to recognize that we have disobeyed God and pleased ourselves very often, we have had things that are more important in our lives than God. Jesus said the greatest commandment was “ to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind ” (Matthew 37).

You should repent because there is no other way to have forgiveness of sins. Sin brings death (Romans ) and is at the root and core of every problem Why should you repent?

Repent. Acts Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts If you keep anything back in this crucial first step, if there is a sin you don’t dare admit to, you will never become completely free from your past.

This is a crucial part of repentance. However, if you open up your heart to God and own up to all that sin which has plagued your conscience with that nagging guilt for so long, Psalm will. “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” – 2 Peter God’s desire is that we all would reach repentance.

The focus of Jesus Christ’s mission was to call sinners to repentance: “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke ).

His call of absolute surrender goes out to all people: “But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” (Luke ). The reason you should repent is because God wants to prove that He can be a better God to you.

He wants to be so intensely close that He becomes a better refuge, a much greater strength, a surpassing glory. Changing the surface symptoms won’t cure our disease. We have to turn our heart to God. In the Bible, the word repent means “to change one’s mind.” The Bible also tells us that true repentance will result in a change of actions (Luke –14; Acts ).

In summarizing his ministry, Paul declares, “I preached that they should repent and turn to God and demonstrate their repentance by their deeds” (Acts ). Israel, stop the evil you are doing.

We don’t lose our place in God’s family when we sin, but we miss out on the joy that comes with salvation unless we repent of our specific sins (Psalm ). We will always be God’s children, but. This idea that you can’t repent of something you didn’t do seems like common sense to us. More importantly, some passages in Scripture seem to agree.

Jeremiah looks ahead to a day when people will be punished strictly for their own sins (Jer. ), and Ezekiel suggests that that day has already arrived: “Behold, all souls are mine. If we will not repent, Jesus has one word for us, “Woe, to you” (Matthew ). This is why his demand for repentance is part of his central message that the kingdom of God is at hand.

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel” (Mark ). To understand why you need to repent, you must understand the impact of sin in your life. I want to consider sin from two perspectives, the perspective for the unbeliever and the perspective of the believer.

For the unbeliever, repentance is needed to restore relationship. If you even get a glimpse of that, it will heal the diseases of your soul.” The more God wakes me up to this reality, the more I want to repent.

So next time I feel forsaken, that God is distant, doesn’t care and that I’m not his kid because of my constant sinning, I need to. We know we should repent and say sorry when we do wrong others. Wronging someone else or failing to love our neighbor is tantamount to sinning against God or failing to love God.

Why Should I Repent. Repentance is something most of us hate doing. To repent means a person has to humble themselves, admit that they are wrong and take responsibility for their actions. Very hard to do in a society where people blame others, where people find it hard to say “sorry” and where humility is something many people do not even.
