LESSON INTRODUCTION: Sin entered the world through Adam along with death which is the penalty for sin – Romans 5:12. The guilt and penalty of sin has been transferred from generation to generation to all descendant of Adam; that is, all mankind. According to Romans 5:23 all have sinned and come short of God’s glory. The soul that sins shall die Ezekiel 18:4, so all deserve to die.

God however in his infinite mercy and love for mankind has made a way of escape from death by sending His son Jesus Christ to die for the forgiveness of sins. John 3:16, Matthew 1:21.
This salvation and its benefits can only be accessed through repentance and turning to Jesus. Act.5:30-31.

LESSON OUTLINE ONE
WHAT IS REPENTANCE?
1. To repent is to have a change of mind, a change of heart or a change of direction.

  1. It is like a driver going in a wrong direction who suddenly realizes his error, make a U-turn and faces the right direction. The prodigal son who abandoned his farther in Luke15:17-21 changed his mind and returned to the father.

  2. To repent is to turn away from sin and turn to righteousness.
    Zacchaeus repented of his sinful ways and Jesus confirmed that salvation had come into his house. Luke 19:8-9

  3. To repent is to turn away from serving the devil and letting Jesus Christ become the master. Saul the persecutor of the church – Act 8:3, repented and became Paul the servant of Jesus Christ. Romans 1:1

Therefore repentance should not be delayed. Repent NOW!!!
