Text: Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. (Acts 5:31)

Text: When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. (Acts 11:18)

Tweet: Repentance is God-given, never self-induced. We cannot muster it up within ourselves, no matter how hard we grit our teeth or clinch our fists. It, like its accompanying salvation, is a divinely granted gift of God’s amazing grace.
