Fear of God Devotional: Repentance: A One-Time Event in the Life of a Christian?



Is repentance a one-time event in the life of a Christian?

Curt Daniels explains in this video that repentance is not a one-time event in the life of a Christian – rather, it is something that continues throughout the life of a Christian. The first of Martin Luther’s 95 theses reads: “When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said ‘Repent,’ he intended that the entire life of believers should be repentance.”

The Christian life starts with repentance at conversion and it is something that continues throughout the life of a Christian. In essence, it is at the heart of the Christian life. 

Mark 1:14-15 (NKJV) – “Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
