"I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." 
LK5:32 MT 9:12-13 MK2:15-17

Miraculous power available to the humble believer who repents of his sin (harmfulness); use that power to save people. (principles from LK5:4-11)

"The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!" Go tell everyone. (principles from MK1:14-38)

Repent, confess your harmfulness, prepare the way for the Lord to come into your life. A godly heritage won't save you. If you don't produce good fruit, (apply the principles), you will be thrown into hell. Those who repent will be cleansed by and given life in the Holy Spirit, but will also pass through trials. (principles from MT3:1-12)

Repentance is shown by how we try to apply the principles. God will throw those who refuse to repent into unquenchable fire. Those who repent will be cleansed by and given life in the Holy Spirit, but will also pass through trials. (principles from LK3:1-18)

Some unbelievers deceive people away from the truth, from God Himself. They and their followers will be exposed and judged unfavorably, and what they did in private will be proclaimed to everyone. As for open harmfulness, God will take away the life of anyone who is greedy for possessions and a life of leisure. Give a large portion of your wealth to the poor (see also LK 19:1-10), and don't wait. Be ready to meet the Lord. We all must repent or perish. Though the Lord is patient, our time does have a limit. (principles from LK11:53-13:9)

To begin with, repent, repent, repent of things like your preoccupation with money and worldly things. Turn, and forcefully do things in the other direction, toward the Lord. Recognize the harmful desires in your heart and value overcoming them (even though people may approve of them), showing the Lord you care about Him and His way of life, his everlasting principles. Divorcing your spouse and then marrying someone else is adultery (unless the one you divorced was maritally unfaithful, see MT 19:9); don't be insensitive to what Jesus says. Don't cause others to sin; there is a heavy price to pay. Forgive your brother when he repents. Humble serving is our duty. (principles from LK15:1-17:10)

And he shall go before him [the Lord WU] in the spirit and power of Elias [Elijah WU], to turn the hearts of the fathers to the[ir WU] children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. LK 1:17

Hating good will keep you from believing in Jesus. They who love good and can see that Jesus is doing good as God does good, will be protected from destruction by Jesus, who is one with God the Father Almighty/Creator. They will bring God into their life when they believe in Jesus, who they see and assess as doing the good of God, including miracles showing He is one with the Father. Repent, turn from your own sinful (harmful) ways, turn to God, choose to do His will and you will be enabled to experience the reality of Jesus Christ and truly believe in him for salvation into a new life with God. (principles from JH10:22-42)

Repent (confess your harm-doing). Jesus will baptize us with the Holy Spirit. (principles from MK1:1-8)

Love brings depth.
    He who applies the principles of God in this world, risks his own neck.
        In the beginning, Jesus is God.
Repent, turn your hearts to God, because He's coming this way.
                       (principles from JH1:1-34)

Repentance and forgiveness of sins (the harm you've done) through Jesus bring life and peace. (principles from LK1:67-2:16)

Repent and follow Jesus, and then call others to repent and follow Jesus. (principles from MT4:17-22)

Jesus is our Life! Through His death on the cross and resurrection three days later we receive forgiveness of our sins and eternal life, when we repent and believe in Him as the Christ, the Son of God. Then God lives in us! Go tell others the gospel so they can have Him too! Don't be afraid! God will enable you and bless you with peace, so have no fear. Don't be insensitive to His words! (principles from LK24:13-53)
