Con-sid-er; (v) to think carefully about, contemplate, reflect on, examine. “Are you so preoccupied with things like your career, the internet, TV, and your hobbies that you seldom stop to consider your ways?” Romans 3:19 says: “now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God.” God’s Law, the 10 Commandments: you shall not murder, lie, steal, commit adultery. Jesus said that: if we hate someone it’s as if we’ve committed murder and everyone who looks with lustful intent has already committed adultery in their heart (Mt 5:17 – 48). Have you ever hated, lied, or lusted? Matthew 12:36 says: “God will hold you accountable for every careless word you’ve ever spoken and all of your immoral thoughts and actions.” What if the way you live your life today, truly is an offence to Him? How many times have you sinned, in breaking His law and rightfully deserve Hell? Hebrews 9:27 says: “it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.”
The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel (Mark 1:15). Have you ever heard of the Good News? (i.e the Gospel). The Bible teaches: God showed His love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us, bearing God’s wrath to pay for our sin, in order to free us to bring Him glory with our lives Romans 5:8, Romans 15:7-8, Isaiah 53.
Re-pent-ance; (v) as the result of knowledge, a change of mind, conduct and purpose. Jesus said: “I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance” Luke 5:31-32. God demands that we turn from our life of sin and by faith surrender our lives to Jesus Christ alone.
