REPENT Following a very strong teaching on repentance where Jesus concluded “IF YOU DO NOT TURN FROM YOUR SINS, YOU WILL ALL DIE AS THEY DID” [Lk 13:3,5 GN], Jesus told a teaching story about a tree that did not bear fruit. In the conclusion of the story after receiving encouragement to give the tree another chance, Jesus states “IF IT BEARS FRUIT NEXT YEAR, FINE! IF NOT, THEN CUT IT DOWN” [Lk 13:9 NI]. Considering the context of the teaching story, being given another chance to bear fruit or to repent before the terminal solution is serious. Will you repent? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
