Repent, Yield To The Redeemer

Key Verse

“Repent ye therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the time of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19).

Text — Matthew 21:28-32


A Sunday school teacher asked a class what the word “Repentance” means? A little boy put up his hand and said, “It is being sorry enough to quit.”

The little boy was right. Repentance goes beyond just being sorry about wrongdoing. When a penitent sinner comes to the Lord and desires forgiveness for his sins, he is expected to confess and forsake them, as a mark of submission to God (Proverbs 28:13). Continuing in sin after supposed repentance is self-deception. Judas Iscariot was sorry after betraying his Master for just thirty pieces of silver but did not submit himself to the will of God. Though he returned the money he collected from the Sanhedrins, he committed suicide contrary to the will of God. Peter, on the other hand, denied Christ thrice but he repented and was restored to fellowship with the Saviour. When we repent we don’t go back to sin. Recipients of God’s grace are free from sin and condemnation. They submit to His will, make necessary restitutions and keep themselves from all kinds of defilement (Romans 8:1-2).


Don’t go back to sin


Repent and don’t go back to sin.

Prayer for today

Lord, keep me free from sin.
