“The time has come. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe the good news!” (Mark 1:15)
Repentance always involves a two-part movement: a turning away and a
turning toward. Turning away from
autonomy and turning toward obedience, turning away from control and turning
toward surrender, turning away from independence and turning toward
dependence. Ultimately, repentance is
about turning away from my kingdom and turning toward God’s.
