How Repentance and Faith Work Together

Wed, Nov. 15, 2017 Posted: 07:00 AM


What is the relationship between faith and repentance?

John Snyder explains in this video that faith and repentance are two sides of one coin. No one would turn to God from their sin apart from a saving faith. After conversion, we believe what God has said about us and the world and sin. We want to make room for God and to turn away from all other substitutes.

Repentance is not a one-time event. Similarly, faith has a beginning and it continues throughout the life of a believer. There is a life of believing God and responding to God. In the same way, in regards to repentance, there is an ongoing turning. We turn away from all, that we may turn afresh to God.

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, testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.”
