Man can repent at any moment. Instead of thinking of what you didn’t do or what you were supposed to do and didn’t and, as a result, raise a wall between you and God, you’d better think of what you are called to do right now. Repent now, at any moment or time you hear God’s messages.
So, whoever truly wants to be saved, doesn’t hold on to what he didn’t do, nor whimper. What you need to do now is repent. That’s what God wants you to feel: that you are a sinner, that you are in the dark, that you have the need of light, the need of sal- vation and that Christ comes especially for you. And repent.
If you constantly repent, repentance itself be- comes like a river which sweeps away everything; it will leave nothing unwashed.
