Fear of God Devotional: Is Repentance Necessary to Come to Christ?

Is repentance necessary to come to Christ?

John Snyder explains in this video that repentance is absolutely necessary to come to Christ. Repentance is not just cleaning up one’s outward appearance. There must be a mourning for our sin, a turning from it, and an embracing of godliness. 

There is no room for both Christ and our sin. We must repent and turn away from sin. There must be a humility in the life of a believer that understands how spiritually weak they are. Believers must hunger and thirst after righteousness. 

Matthew 5:4-6 (NKJV) – “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.”
