Jesus’s first directive was not to believe, but to repent. In this sermon, Pastor Allen Jackson discusses how repentance leads to faith—it’s a foundational practice we cannot afford to ignore. Our salvation is an expression of grace—we didn’t earn it, we don’t deserve it, and it’s not based on merit. But for Jesus to be Lord of our lives, we need to regularly repent and yield our will to Him. Jesus is Lord of everything, or He’s not Lord of anything. Pastor Allen offers steps we can take toward repentance, inviting the Spirit of God to give us eyes to see and ears to hear what He wants us to show us.
