9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
But unless you repent, you too will all perish.
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart.
2 Corinthians 7:10
Godly sorrow brings repentance
that leads to salvation and leaves no regret,
but worldly sorrow brings death.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise,
as some understand slowness.
Instead he is patient with you,
not wanting anyone to perish,
but everyone to come to repentance.
2 peter 3:9
Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast,
and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief,
and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.
, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
