Fear of God Devotional: Repentant and Unrepentant Sinners

What is a difference between an unrepentant and a repentant person?

Anthony Mathenia explains in this video that there is a difference between a repentant sinner and an unrepentant sinner. An unrepentant sinner will be condemned if they do not repent. In contrast, a repentant person hopes in the blood of Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. The punishment for their sin was poured out on Christ. 

Though we are all sinners, there are unrepentant sinners who will suffer the wrath of God on themselves for their sins and there are repentant sinners who had Christ absorb the wrath that was due to them. There is no condemnation. 

Romans 8:1-2 (NKJV) – “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”
