Repentance

September 14, 2019 — Thomas M. Hochmann

Yesterday I felt convicted to my core about my own sins, and I was inspired to put together a little montage of scripture on the topic of repentance, in the spirit of Daily Light on the Daily Path. If you have sin you need to confess and turn from, I hope these passages of scripture stir you to get right with God and draw near to him once more.

Because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed. Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.

Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first... and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. Turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.

(Romans 2:5; Proverbs 28:13; Revelation 2:5; Acts 8:22; Psalm 51:17; Acts 3:19-20; James 4:8)
