When Jesus preached, he said, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Because repentance is the way that you enter the kingdom of God, it’s essential to understand the command. So what is repentance?

First, repentance is not feeling remorse because of the consequences of your sin. Repentance isn’t conviction. It isn’t an apology. And it isn’t simply trying to suppress desires and urges that you know are wrong.

Instead, repentance is a change of mind, heart, and behavior towards God and sin. It is a voluntary change of will, feelings, and life itself. True repentance always includes hating and forsaking sin and a great love for Jesus Christ. Real repentance always culminates in a full submission to Jesus.
