This message was delivered by Pastor Jason Boothe at the Gospel of Grace Ministries Bible Conference on Biblical Sanctification, held in October of 2018. Gospel repentance is the work of God wherein He changes the mind of an elect sinner, causing him to turn away from dead works and toward Christ alone as the only source of righteousness before God. It is only through God’s gift of Gospel repentance that believers are lead into “a knowledge of the truth.” Yes, the Lord “gives us understanding” in the gift of repentance! Repentance is an essential element of God’s salvation in Christ. Without repentance, a sinner cannot experience the blotting out of his sin. As Peter preached to the crowds gathered in Acts chapter 3, “Repent, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out.” God must grant repentance before we can even look to Christ for all righteousness. And only Christ can blot out sin, imputing His perfect righteousness to His people.
