Fear of God Devotional: The Common Theme of Repentance Throughout Scripture

What is a common theme of early New Testament sermons?

Jason Dohm explains in this video that throughout Scripture, sinners are called to repent, believe the Gospel, and be baptized. Jesus Christ, John the Baptist, and Peter each repeated this common theme in their sermons.

The message of repentance begins in the Old Testament and continues throughout all of Scripture. Repentance is the beginning of Gospel preaching. It is a call to turn away from wickedness and to trust only on Christ.

Acts 3:19 (NKJV) – “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”
