If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, then you know that I discussed something that's truly important to Christians.
What was it?
However, today I'll be discussing about how important it is for... repentance.
As I mentioned, anyone who backslides basically turns away from our Lord, and begins to sin again, just as they may have done before they gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
This truly tells us that we need to make sure that we don't sin. For, we want to honour our Lord, and live as He would have us live.
If we don't, then we truly need to repent for whatever sin we have in our lives.
Just as we read, in Acts 17:29-31, "Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead."
And, just as we read, in Revelation 2:5, "Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent."
Repent, if you are coming to Christ, to gain salvation.
But, also... if you have backslidden, then... repent.
For this is what God insists you need to do.
If you do repent, you'll be blessed by Him.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
