Repentance

Sunday, December 9, 2012

Luke 3:1-6

Another sound fills the Advent sky—the cry of John the Baptist from the barren wilderness at the heart of life. The voice was heard centuries earlier, when Isaiah promised a time when all twisted, crooked, uneven, rough, out-of-balanced parts of the world would be made straight and smooth again.

These promises will be fulfilled within us on one condition—repentance. The word in Greek, metanoia, means a change of heart and attitude, a total shift in the way in which we look at things. The way of selfishness and sin, of resentment, of fear, of being a victim, is over.

Are you serious about the changes that need to take place in you? What kind of repentance needs to happen that would unlock a deep rush of Godly love within you? Ask the Spirit, who will tell you—if you are serious.
