Fear of God Devotional: Is Repentance Necessary for Salvation?

Is repentance necessary for salvation?

Jason Dohm explains in this video that repentance is absolutely necessary for salvation because repentance is always joined with faith and salvation comes through faith alone. 

In Acts 3:19, Peter declares, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.” It is very clear from that one verse – repent and be converted. These two words are joined. You cannot be converted without repentance.  

2 Timothy 2:22 (NKJV) – “Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
