Now before that, as Christians, we are called to repent and bear fruits of repentance. Now before Christians go out preaching the gospel and evangelizing, is it more important to repent of all of our sins and become holy rather than preaching first? Jesus wants us to be holy so, is it more important that we are clean and holy? Will we still go to Heaven if we live in holiness more?
