When should we repent?

November 12th, 2010

A Pastor was teaching some teenage students a lesson on preparing for death and on repentance.

One of the students asked, “Pastor, when should we repent after we have sinned?”

The Pastor thought about it for a while and responded, “Repent a day before your death.”

His students were confused and discussed it with each other for a while. Finally they asked, “How can we know the day of our death?”

His answer: “We cannot, and since we may die tomorrow, it is all the more necessary for someone who has sinned to repent today.”
