The First Sermon That Christ Preached - Thomas Watson
Repentance is a grace required under the gospel. Some think it legal; but the first sermon that Christ preached, indeed, the first word of his sermon, was "Repent" (Matt. 4:17). And his farewell that he left when he was going to ascend was that repentance should be preached in his name' (Luke 24:47). The apostles did all beat upon this string: 'They went out and preached that men should repent' (Mark 6:12).
