From G3340; (subjectively) compunction (for guilt, including reformation); by implication reversal (of [another’s] decision): - repentance.
JESUS SHOWS MERCY- BUT COMMANDS TO REPENT
The Gospel defined:
How do you obey that? Go here. If the gospel is Jesus having to die, be buried and raise again, we obey by our death, burial and resurrection by repenting (dying to self lordship) burial (baptism) and resurrection (being filled with the holy spirit). Acts 2:38.
From G3816; to train up a child, that is, educate, or (by implication) discipline (by punishment): - chasten (-ise), instruct, learn, teach.
Jesus came to save us FROM our sins, not IN or sins.
How are you doing? Have you repented?
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
All addictions and bad habits must be rejected, turned away from in order for them to not be ruling over you! No more making excuses for your habits that "Jesus understands and covers by his blood"! You only hope his blood covers your submission to another lord over your life, but I wouldn't want ot bet my eternity on it. Are you betting your eternity on it? Probably a bad bet.
In fact, all undisciplined areas of our lives must be brought unto subjection.
