Repentance

aberavonOur Lord makes it very plain and clear, repeatedly, that the one thing which damns and condemns people and keeps them outside the kingdom is that they refuse to repent.

…where there is no repentance, there is no love for God and no forgiveness. We must be careful, therefore, lest we damn ourselves in our apparent cleverness to wrest the Scriptures to our own destruction. There is no ‘love of God’ for you unless you have repented or unless you do repent. Make no mistake about this. Do not rely or bank on God’s love. It is only given to the penitent; there is no entry into the kingdom of God except by repentance.

– MLJ, 1932, Evangelistic Sermons at Aberavon
