LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

From number 5, H.A. Ironside -

"True, forgiveness is by faith, but there can be no faith without repentance, and no repentance without faith. What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder."

"Surely no sane, thoughtful reader of the record can escape the conclusion that repentance, while in no sense meritorious, is nevertheless a prerequisite to saving faith. An unrepentant man can never, in the very nature of things, lay hold of the gospel message in appropriating faith, thus receiving the Lord Jesus as his own personal Saviour."

Repentance flows from a knowledge that one is a sinner and is not right with a Holy God. From this knowledge a sinner gladly welcomes the pardon that comes through faith in Jesus Christ.

Why would a man who has no knowledge or regret for his sin feel a need for a savior?

John the baptist, Jesus, Paul, and Peter all proclaimed that lost sinners should repent.

Anyone claiming that repentance does not go hand in hand with saving faith has stumbled over a stone every bit as big as the Jews stumbled over in Romans 9.
