20 Inspiring Bible Verses About Repentance

Repentance leads to forgiveness of sin. Repentance is essential for us when we go astray or commit sins by doing things that are not pleasing to God. He convicts us with His word, which brings repentance into our lives.


God’s will is to save every one of us. This is why He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. We should examine ourselves and allow the Spirit of God through His word to give us a repentant heart to turn to God, submitting ourselves to His will and purpose for our lives.
