Repentance unlocks God’s door of forgiveness for sinners. Everyone needs repentance to obtain God’s mercy, as the scripture stated, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 NIV). We must come humbly before God to ask for mercy, forgiveness, and salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible reference
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
(1 John 1:9 KJV)
