Fear of God Devotional: Repentance: The Heart of the Christian Life

Does repentance continue even after salvation?

Jason Dohm explains in this video that Martin Luther once said the heart of the Christian life is repentance. Once you have been justified, there is nothing you can do to be somehow more justified. But that doesn’t mean that repentance is something that Christians do once and never again. 

Rather, Christians are a people who are repenting multiple times every day because they understand that they fall short of the glory of God. 

Proverbs 28:13 (NKJV) – β€œHe who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”
