Confess Our Sins – Alan Redpath

Confess Our Sins – Alan Redpath

It’s Satan’s delight to tell me that once he’s got me, he will keep me. But at that moment I can go back to God. And I know that if I confess my sins, God is faithful and just to forgive me.

The only deal on the table – Alan Vincent

The only deal on the table – Alan Vincent

Jesus has no intention of helping anyone live a better life. He only had one intention and that is to totally kill you. And then live in your place. That is the only deal on the table.

The seriousness of sin – Tony Reinke

The seriousness of sin – Tony Reinke

Christ’s blood reveals the seriousness of our sin. We insurrected the king. We defiled His glory. We deserve His wrath, and Christ absorbed it.

Jesus and Jesus Alone – Count Zinzendorf

I have but one passion: It is He, it is He alone. The world is the field and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ.

Nature of True Repentance – JC Ryle

Nature of True Repentance – JC Ryle

The nature of true repentance is clearly and unmistakably laid down in holy Scripture. It begins with knowledge of sin. It goes on to work sorrow for sin. It leads to confession of sin before God. It shows itself before man by a thorough breaking off from sin. It results in producing a habit of deep hatred for all sin. Above all, it is inseparably connected with lively faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance like this is the characteristic of all true Christians.

The Foundation to Christianity – JC Ryle

The Foundation to Christianity – JC Ryle

“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:5
The truth here asserted, is one of the foundations of Christianity. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). All of us are born in sin. We are fond of sin, and are naturally unfit for friendship with God. Two things are absolutely necessary to the salvation of every one of us. We must repent, and we must believe the Gospel. Without repentance towards God, and faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ, no one can be saved.
