Topic: New Testament Scripture: Matthew 3:1–3:12
Repent! This was the message of John the Baptist, the final prophet to announce the coming of the Messiah.
To repent means to change. To turn from self-centred living to self-less living. And not just once, but making a perpetual habit of it.
John's harshest criticism was directed at those who pretended to be godly, but in reality were not. They had not genuinely repented.
