The Gospel always requires a response. No response is a response. The Bible teaches that anyone who confesses their sin before God, repents (to turn away) of that sin, and believes in Christ will be saved (Romans 10:9, Acts 2:38-39).
That's good news!
Once we confess, repent, and belive; scripture teaches us that at the moment of salvation:
-We have been made new (2 Corinthians 5:17)
- We have been given a new heart with new desires.
