THE POWER OF GOD UNLEASHED
Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works (useless rituals) and of faith toward God.
I have observed that newer Christians often have a greater capacity to make strides in belief while those of us who are churched and religious are more resistant to believing in new ways. Why? Because we’re resistant to repent. Most of us have an awareness of godliness and ungodliness. We think, “Well, I’m not doing anything really immoral. That repentance thing is for other people.” We miss the idea that repentance isn’t about just gross sin, but anything in our lives that obstructs our ability to believe God and to grow in faith. If you are in a place where you need the power of God unleashed in your life in a more significant way―and who among us isn’t―then repentance is for you. The Church of Jesus Christ is more than a Bible study society. We are more than just collectors of information. The power of the Living God is at work in you and through you, and repentance is a powerful tool for allowing God’s purposes to emerge in your life.
Heavenly Father, I repent for all things in my life that distract me from Your purposes. Forgive me for being stagnant. I want Your best for my life. If there is any thought or behavior that hinders me, help me to recognize it. I want to follow You more fully. In Jesus’ name, amen.
