"...Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will likewise perish." - Luke 13 V3

"For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death." - 2 Corinthians 7 V10

Repent, and turn to Jesus. The Bible teaches that every man is a sinner and all our works are like filthy rags before God. We cannot please God based on our own merits, no matter how hard we try. But we can please God through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord. Repentance is the first step to salvation. Acknowledging the fact that I am a sinner and I need a Saviour to save me, is the first step. Repent, for God is faithful and just to forgive, and then receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith. Godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted.

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

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
