J. I. Packer: What Does It Mean to Repent?

It is a costly thing to repent and so we try to walk at a distance from God. But God says turn around, face me, and walk towards me. When we take repentance seriously, we find great joy in communing with God that far outweighs the cost of sacrificing our selfishness and sin. In this short video, J. I. Packer explains what it means to repent and why we need to take it seriously.
