Fear of God Devotional: The Relationship Between Faith and Repentance

How are faith and repentance related to each other? 

Anthony Mathenia explains in this video that in regards to the relationship between faith and repentance, you cannot have one without the other. It may look like there is repentance without faith or vice versa but ultimately, God gives both faith and repentance and both are exercised. 

We repent by turning from sin and we turn to God which is faith. It is two sides of the same coin. The relationship between faith and repentance is inseparable. It is not possible to have one without the other.  

Romans 10:8-9 (NKJV) – “But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
