Gospel Thread - NT:

11 He told them, "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables 12 so that, " 'they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!' "

Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever.

Psalm 37:27 (NIV)

God's call to man has always been to repent - to turn from evil and to do good - so that man's relationship with God might be restored, and so that God might be able to bestow His blessings upon man.
