How are faith and repentance related?
Jason Dohm explains in this video that there must be repentance towards God and faith in Christ. They are distinct but they are inseparable. Repentance is a turning from while faith is a turning to God. There is a very close relationship between the two.
We should think of them as being two sides of the same coin. Repentance is a turning from something while faith is a turning to something.
Acts 20:20-21 (NKJV) – “ I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house, 21 testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.”
