To accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior requires simply to believe..but many come to say that Repentance is part of the package.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have ever lasting life.? That’s all it takes to be saved..”belief.”
But then the work begins and there is much of it because at before salvation we were so full of sin that it drove us to seek God to get us out of some mess in our lives…we are so sorrowful that we begin to confess those sins, unto repentance.
People should know that sin doesn’t go away by itself; therefore even saved folks need to have continued confession of our sins daily. There is no walk unhindered by sin so it needs to be dealt with and given up.
Our hope is God who gave us the Holy Spirit to lift us when our loads get heavy…amen. Remember prayer and confession is good for your soul…take advantage of the priviledge to confess your sins before God often….
