Luke 24:46-47 – 46 Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
The message of Jesus has always been “repent”. It was first carried by John the Baptist (repent and be baptized) and was later preached after Jesus ascended by His Apostles. The key to any relationship with Jesus is to acknowledge the sin in your life and leave that sin in your past. Yes, a relationship with Jesus requires work and sacrifice, however, it is not any more than the work and sacrifice that Jesus endured to have a relationship with you.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
