Repentance is turning from sin to God; changing your mind concerning sin, God, and yourself. It means to “turn back” to God. Repentance, Teshuvah in Hebrew, literally means “turning back” to God. Our prayer should be that of David.

Psalms 51:1-2 NKJV

“Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.”

Our desire should be to have our name written in the Book of Life.

Revelation 20:15 NKJV

“And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”

Revelation 21:27 NKJV

“But there by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”

Philippians 4:3 NKJV

“And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.”

Redemption Through Christ

Redemption is gaining back from another something that you have owned before. To buy back for the purpose of setting free from obligation, bondage, or danger. Redemption is salvation from sin, death, and the wrath of God by Christ’s sacrifice.


Psalms 107:2 NKJV

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy”

John 8:36 NKJV

“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

Galatians 3:13 NKJV

“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.”).”

Romans 3:24 NKJV

“Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus”
