432. Repenting About Repentance

Repent! Think you know what it means? Think again. Jesus began His ministry by telling the Jewish people to "repent and believe the good news." Who were these folks? They were people under the Old Covenant who constantly worked, struggled and strived to follow hundreds of religious rules and commands on a daily basis. This "old-time religion" where people worked to establish their own righteousness was not good news. Repentance is not an attempt to avoid sin and behave properly, but rather it's a call to think and have a change of mind. A renewing of the mind about God and how He would deal with sin through a new covenant and the blood of His son, Jesus Christ.
