Devotional For September 7, 2023

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,
‭‭Acts‬ ‭3‬:‭19‬

Repentance is the act of turning away from sin and a turning toward God. There are incredible blessings that flow from genuine repentance. Let’s consider the blessings of having a repentant heart.

First of all, repentance begins with recognizing our need for it. It’s acknowledging our shortcomings, mistakes, and sins. It’s understanding that our hearts require cleansing and renewal. Only Jesus can renew and cleanse us from our sins.

Once we repent we can be converted. Conversion is a beautiful process of turning away from our old ways and embracing a new life in Christ. It’s a transformation that impacts our thoughts, actions, and character.

Through repentance and conversion, God graciously blots out our sins. They are forgiven and remembered no more. The burden of guilt is lifted, and we experience the liberating power of God’s grace.

The verse promises that times of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord. Repentance brings spiritual renewal and rejuvenation. It’s like a breath of fresh air for our souls. There is nothing like being set free from your sin and shame.

Have you repented of your sins? True repentance guides us to a life where we are always aware of our sins and always ready to stop sinning. Only Jesus can give us the power to turn away from sin.


Lord, I come before You in repentance, acknowledging my need for Your forgiveness and renewal. Thank You for the promise of conversion and blotting out my sins. Let me experience the refreshment that come from Your presence. In Jesus’ name, amen.
