Many people today are often caught up in the world, motivated by greed, selfishness and ambition. They don’t give much thought to God or anything else that matters beyond this life on earth. Yet, there exists a warning in the Bible for those who continue to live their lives selfishly, without regard for others or even their own desires to please God. Repentance is one of the most important steps in returning to a close relationship with God.

The clear message of the Bible is that God desires a personal relationship with us and that we can have this relationship by turning away from our sin and trusting in Jesus Christ. Repentance involves acknowledging our sins to God, confessing those sins to Him upon repentance, and turning away from the sins that we have committed in the past. This collection of verses will help you see what it means to repent, understand why repentance is so important, and give you true encouragement along the way.

Old and New Testament Bible Verses About Repentance is an amazing study with all the references to repentance and how to do it. If you have been called by God to be His child, if you have been saved, repented and want to be sure that you will walk in His will then this is a must read.

A genuine Christian conversion begins with an acknowledgement that we are sinful and in need of God’s grace. We will be held accountable for our actions, as we all must give an account before God (Romans 14:12). That’s why repentance means “to turn around” — it involves a change of heart and mind that results in turning away from sin and trusting Jesus Christ alone as your Savior. Repentance is a requirement for forgiveness (2 Corinthians 7:9). God will continue to have mercy on us because of the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ, yet He does not overlook our sins – ever!

Bible verses about repentance speaks of the complete and utter change that must take place in one’s life. This is not just a small inner resolve, but a complete and total transformation of thought process and behavior.
