Because of Calvary,
Mark 1:15 (ESV)
15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
“…Repentance is a change of mind with regard to sin, — with regard, to everything, indeed; and it is a consciousness that sin is sin, — that you have committed it; — it is a sorrow to you that you have committed it, and a resolve, in God’s strength, that you will escape from it; — a holy desire and longing to be rid of sin which has done you so much mischief.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1901), p. 423]
