In those days, John the Baptist preached in the Desert of Judea. He said, "Turn away from your sins! The kingdom of heaven has come near." Matthew 3:1-2 NIRV
John the Baptist preached a message of repentance. He called people to turn away from their sins and turn to God. His message is still relevant today, now more than ever. True repentance is changing your heart, turning away from sin, and walking in the opposite direction towards God. The real difference is in the heart.
