"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" - Mark 16:15

Zac Poonen

Repentance and Faith

"The Word of God is very clear on this. Repentance and faith cannot be separated if you want to be well and truly converted. God has joined these two together. And what God has joined together no man should separate."

"Repentance and faith are actually the first two elements of the foundation of the Christian life (Heb. 6:1). If you haven't repented properly, then your foundation is bound to be faulty. And then, of course, the whole of your Christian life will be shaky."

"The Bible says that "the fear of the Lord is the beginning (or the ABC) of wisdom" (Prov. 9:10). And if we really fear the Lord, we'll "turn away from sin " (Prov. 3:7)."

"So those who haven't repented and turned from sin, haven't learnt even the ABC of the Christian life."
