When He died it was as a Substitute for you and me. God, who is infinitely righteous took the penalty of death we deserved for our sins: Turn means that we give up our lives living as Rebels.
This is what the Bible calls repentance. This is very practical. We need to ask ourselves if we are willing to turn from whatever our sins are to live for Him. It does mean that we have chosen to follow Him, even if we fall on our face many times along the way. Many people have grown up thinking the way to heaven is to be good enough.
Remember the spit in the cup of Coke? Only God giving forgiveness as a gift received by faith: That is incredible news, right? Not a single human being by his own efforts is able to measure up to the glory of God. God desires that we share that splendor, yet our sin prohibits us from experiencing the richness of such a relationship.
What God began in the past, He will accomplish and complete in the future. God considers us children of a Heavenly Father 2 Corinthians 6: When redeemed, we are again sealed into a special relationship with God.

Jesus was the only begotten Son of the Father. The relationship the two shared while Jesus was on earth was unparalleled John 1: But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ Our earthly relationships change.
You and I are destined for change. But Jesus is changeless.
