Fear of God Devotional: Is Repentance Necessary For Salvation?

Is repentance necessary for salvation?

Don Hart explains in this video that repentance does not produce salvation but that it is a necessary component of salvation. One who has faith and is truly a child of God must be a repentant person.

This means that you have turned away from sin and have followed Christ. It is a fruit of a regenerate heart by the grace of God. Repentance will be present and be a perceptible, noticeable, and genuine effect of following Christ.

2 Peter 3:9 (NKJV) – “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[a] not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
