Repentance And Faith - Jeff Pollard
Does repentance continue to be an ongoing act in the life of a Christian after conversion?
Jeff Pollard explains in this video that repentance is an ongoing act in the Christian life. At regeneration, when an elect sinner tastes the glorious grace of God in Jesus Christ and the Spirit of God moves upon his heart, breathing life into his soul, two things arise:
First, repentance. There is a change of mind leads to a change of action. Second, faith. Repentance and faith together are conversion. Conversion is a turning of life. We repent and turn in another direction. But, because we still have a sinful flesh, repentance simply becomes a way of life for the believer. It is a continual act in the life of every regenerate soul.
Proverbs 28:13 (NKJV) – “He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
By God’s grace Jeff Pollard was converted to Jesus Christ from a career in rock music in the early 1980s. Though religious from his youth, his true conversion at age thirty brought him to understand and then to preach God’s sovereign grace. God’s Spirit and Word awakened him to his responsibilities as husband and father as well as to God’s vision for families. Jeff is now an elder of Mt. Zion Bible Church, Pensacola, Florida. He is the editor of the Free Grace Broadcaster and author of Christian Modesty and the Public Undressing of America and Do You Know Jesus Christ?
