J.D. Greear

Repentance is not subsequent to belief; it is part of belief. It is belief in action-choice that flow out of conviction. Repentance literally means “a change of mind” (in Greek, metanoia; meta-“new”, noia=”mind”) about Jesus. Repentance is not merely changing your action; it is changing your actions because you have changed your attitude about Jesus’ authority and glory.
