Repentance Must Be the Goal (Quote: Leahy)

Repentance was a dominant note in apostolic preaching. this has been equally the case in tiems of revival and spiritual awakening. People begin to see sin as god sees it - Rebellion agaisnt God. They become aware of consequences of sin: "The soul who sins shall die" (Ezekiel 18:4,20). That note of repentance is no longer struck as it once was...The "easy believism" of our time does not pierce the sinner's heart, nor does the emotionalism that often passes for evangelism. That note must be recaptured as a matter of urgency if our preaching is to be really effective. Men and women must be made to see the cross through their tears, with "a godly grief" that "produces a repentance that leads to salvation" (2 Cor. 7:10).

At The Cross and Nowhere Else (Quote - Leahy)

If you would have eternal life and go to heaven when you die, then remember that you cannot by-pass the cross. It is here you see your Saviour. It is here your sins are forgiven. It is here you are saved: right here at the cross and nowhere else.
