Repent, Repentance and Repenting

New Testament only, 37 verses
(English Standard Version, ESV)
     You can repent and ask Jesus into your heart anytime, anyplace. It is very easy, just say from your heart,
     Father forgive me of my sins and Jesus come into my heart, fill me with you, and lead me in everything I do, lead me to a real good church and show me how to live my life, Jesus Name.
     But many people want to know why they should repent? Because God says you need it.


Salvation is for everyone, but you have to want it with your heart
1. Matthew 9:11-13 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 11. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12. But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13. Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”
2. Luke 5:31-32 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 31. And Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 32. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”
3. Luke 15:7 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 7. Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
4. Luke 15:10 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 10. Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
5. Luke 17:3-4 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 3. Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, 4. and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”
6. Luke 24:46-48 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 46. and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, 47. and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48. You are witnesses of these things.
7. Acts 2:38 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 38. And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
8. Acts 3:18-19 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 18. But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled. 19. Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,
9. Acts 11:15-18 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 15. As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them just as on us at the beginning. 16. And I remembered the word of the Lord, how he said, ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ 17. If then God gave the same gift to them as he gave to us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could stand in God's way?” 18. When they heard these things they fell silent. And they glorified God, saying, “Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life.”
10. Acts 17:22-31 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 22. So Paul, standing in the midst of the Areopagus, said: “Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. 23. For as I passed along and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription: ‘To the unknown god.’ What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you. 24. The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, 25. nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. 26. And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, 27. that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, 28. for “‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’ 29. Being then God's offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man. 30. The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, 31. because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”
11. Acts 20:20-25 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 20. how I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you in public and from house to house, 21. testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance toward God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. 22. And now, behold, I am going to Jerusalem, constrained by the Spirit, not knowing what will happen to me there, 23. except that the Holy Spirit testifies to me in every city that imprisonment and afflictions await me. 24. But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. 25. And now, behold, I know that none of you among whom I have gone about proclaiming the kingdom will see my face again.
12. 2 Timothy 2: 24-25 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 24. And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, 25. correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth,
13. James 4:1-17 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 1. What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? 2. You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. 4. You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5. Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”? 6. But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 7. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. 11. Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 12. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor? 13. Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— 14. yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. 15. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” 16. As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. 17. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
14. 2 Peter 3:9 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 9. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
15. 1 John 1:9 (esv), Salvation is for everyone 9. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Jesus is the Answer

17. Matthew 4:16-17 (esv), Jesus is the Answer 16. The people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.” 17. From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
18. John 1:1 (esv), Jesus is the Answer 1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word (Jesus) was God.
19. John 3:16 (esv), Jesus is the Answer 16. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
20. John 10:10 (esv), Jesus is the Answer 10. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
21. Acts 2:38 (esv), Jesus is the Answer 38. And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
22. Acts 4:12 (esv), Jesus is the Answer 12. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

     Father forgive me of my sins and Jesus come into my heart, fill me with you, and lead me in everything I do, lead me to a real good church and show me how to live my life, Jesus Name.
