"Repent" – it's a difficult command for anyone to hear but critical for all to obey. For unbelievers to repent and turn to Christ, but also for believers to continually repent of our sins. Overall, though, it is more directed toward unbelievers. Repentance is urgent because we are all sinners and, though God is patient, his patience is limited. We must understand what repentance is (as compared to remorse or penance), the fact that we are all sinners in need of repentance, about the punishment that comes to unrepentant sinners, and that time to repent is not unlimited…the time does come when it is too late. Yet, there remains the grace we have, found in Jesus Christ.
