The Timing of Repentance and Faith

Tue, Oct. 17, 2017 Posted: 08:59 AM


Does repentance precede faith or does faith come first?

Curt Daniels explains in this video that both faith and repentance occur at the same time. He references John Murray who explained in his book, Redemption – Accomplished and Applied, that “[t]here is no priority. The faith that is unto salvation is a penitent faith and the repentance that is unto life is a believing repentance … saving faith is permeated with repentance and repentance is permeated with saving faith.”  In short, faith and repentance go hand in hand and are inseparable.

Mark 1:14-15 (NKJV) – “Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.’”
