"Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin." - Psalm 51 V2

"Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities." - Psalm 51 V9

Repentance is an essential theme of Christian teachings. Salvation of heart begins with repentance. Repentance is not just mere change of mind but sincere change of heart. No matter how bad our sinful life is, God is willing to forgive those who repent and ask for forgiveness and accept His Son Jesus Christ. The change that Christ brings in one's life is a true great miracle that we get to witness even to this day. No wonder why all the heavens rejoice over one sinner that repents.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
