Luke 13:1-5 NKJV 1There were present at that season some who told HIM about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2And JESUS answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? 3”I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4 “or those eighteen on whom the tower in siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”
Why repentance is very important?
-in verse 5 as we read “unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” Meaning repentance is a must to avoid perishing. Let’s read in Isaiah 59:2 NKJV But your Iniquities have separated you from GOD; and your sins have hidden HIS face from you, so the HE will not hear. -because of Iniquities we there’s a spiritual gap between humanity and our GOD, and we need reconciliation to HIM the one who created us. And GOD provide the way for that reconciliation when HE send HIS only son JESUS CHRIST.
As we read in John 3:16 NKJV For GOD so Loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten son, that whoever believes in HIM should not perish but have eternal life. John 14:6 NKJV JUESUS said to HIM, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the FATHER except though ME. Religion cannot save us even good works is not a 100% guarantee that it will save you. That’s why you need to accept JESUS CHRIST and surrender your Life to HIM.
How to Repent?
- Confess Your Sin Directly to GOD- 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, HE is Faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Stop sinning Anymore: Matthew 18:7-9
7”Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offenses comes!
8“if your hand or foot causes you to sin cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire.
9″And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather two than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
