19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
If you consider yourself a follower of Christ, at some point in your life you prayed a prayer similar to this one:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name. Amen.”
When we repent, we acknowledge that our way is wrong and that God’s way is right.
Even though Christian conversion is a unique time in someone’s life, our willingness to repent when sin is revealed in our lives and turn to God are a crucial part of our spiritual growth; it affirms the power of the Cross in our lives (the forgiveness of our sins), and it brings time of refreshing from the Lord.
