Jesus proclaimed, “repent or perish!” His primary message was “repent for the kingdom of God is at hand.” The kingdom has arrived and no man can enter without repenting! Repentance is not penitence, though penitence is related. Repentance is not penance, though it leads to the desire to correct one’s wrongs. Repentance is not reformation, though reform results from repentance. So then, what is repentance? The word means to change one’s will from self-will to God’s will. The will of man has to do with intention. Who do you intend to please? Are you ruled by your own passion and desire or do you ask what does God will? No one can get to heaven without repentance, without a lifetime change from choosing his own will to God’s will. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
