Repentance is a grace of God’s Spirit whereby a sinner is inwardly humbled and visibly reformed. In Adam all suffered shipwreck; repentance is the only plank by which we may swim to heaven. It is a grace required under the gospel. The first sermon Christ preached—indeed, the very first word of His sermon—was “Repent” (Matt. 4:17). This was also His farewell message, which He commanded to be proclaimed in all the earth (Luke 24:47). Repentance was what the apostles went out to preach (Mark 6:12). God Himself commands all men everywhere to repent (Matt. 3:2; Acts 3:19; 8:22; 17:30; cf. Heb. 6:1).
