What comes before repentance? Or what helps us to repent? We are going to look at some texts before we get to Lent and the season of repentance. All of this is not to grind us down, but to open us up to God’s work in our lives.
Matthew 3:1-17 — Jesus baptism re-frames the meaning and our experience of repentance, resulting in the forgiveness of sin for all who trust him.
Isaiah 61; 1 Peter 2 — Salvation is God’s rescue from darkness to light for God’s glory; we continue to grow into this purpose.
