- The Need for Repentance
- A sermon from Walter Chantry on 3/25/2012
- Jesus pronounces condemnation on all those who will not repent.
- Matthew 11:20-30
John the Baptist and Jesus both came proclaiming the message; "Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand." Though many people heard the words of Christ and saw His mighty works, they did not repent and believe in Him. Christ proclaims the guilt and condemnation of all who do not repent from their sin and unbelief. Pride, intellect, wealth, all stand in the way of the grace of God, but those who are humble will be blessed by God with the understanding and knowledge of Christ and of God and so will be saved by Him. Christ presents the wonderful and beautiful invitation of salvation with the offer that the heavy burden of sin and guilt will be taken away by the gentle and humble Savior and replaced by His easy yoke and light burden.
