Scripture:
“But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die.” Ezekial 18:21 

A Call To: Repentance

Do you ever wish you could see a Bible character come to life in your day and age? Would you like to see the radical transformation of Saul of Tarsus to Paul? Saul was a wicked person who killed Christians. He lived a life of sin. When God came into his life, he was radically changed. 

A few months ago, I watched a church service on tv where an angry rapper who lived for himself, fame, and love of money radically changed. He went from singing songs about money and wild living to singing about how “Jesus Is King.” Today, he no longer sings his old songs at concerts. He only sings songs that glorify God. He completely turned away from his sin to follow Jesus. 

Maybe you’re not as wicked as Saul or the rapper, but “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23. There comes a point in everyone’s life when we have to decide whether or not we’re going to repent, turn away from sin, and follow Jesus.  I pray today is that day for you. If you turn away from all your sin, you will surely live!

Reflection

Is there an area in your life which isn’t pleasing to Jesus? 

Praise + Prayer:
Lord, I am a sinner. Forgive me for when I have failed You. I repent of my sins and want You to be Lord of my life. Wash me clean and give me a new heart for You. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
