Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, (Acts 3:19 NIV)
Do you have a repentant heart?
Thought for the Day: The absolute necessity of repentance is to be solemnly charged upon the consciences of all who desire their sins may be blotted out, and that they may share in the refreshment which nothing but a sense of Christ’s pardoning love can afford. Blessed are those who have felt this. But when sinners are convinced of their sins, they will cry to the Lord for pardon; and to the penitent, converted, and believing, times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord. In a state of trial and probation, the glorified Redeemer will be out of sight, because we must live by faith in him.
Prayer: Dear Father, I have suffered at the hands of others. I know things have conditioned me, and hurt me. But it is not all just about my situation, and my past. I’ve made mistakes, and the denial of my sin is an obstacle to my freedom. I will not be deceived by the lie, telling me there is no hope. I will not be confused by the world, telling me there is no price to be paid. God, You want to set me free in truth. That is why You sent Your Son to save me. That I may be free in Christ rising up. Show me Lord, where my faults are, so that You may clean my wounds. Forgive me, Jesus. Cleanse me, Father. Renew me Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
