“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.”


How do you avoid perishing? Come to repentance. What is repentance? It is a change of mind. The Greek word, metanoia, means “I changed my mind.” I have been trusting myself, living in sin, and going this way—and I have a radical, dramatic change of mind. I repent, I turn from sin to Jesus. It means you shift from placing faith in yourself to placing faith in Him. Have you said, “Lord once and for all, now and forever, I trust you; I receive you to be my Lord and my Savior”? That is repentance. Jesus said, in Luke 13:3, “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” Second Peter 3:9 reminds us, “The Lord is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” Repentance is not just turning over a new leaf; it’s receiving a new life. It’s trusting Christ as your personal Savior.

This is not only a decision you make once but an act of trust every day, turning to Him as your Savior and putting faith in Him instead of in yourself.

  • What are some ways you have trusted in yourself instead of God?
  • What has changed in your life since you began following Jesus?


Consider if there is anything you need to repent of today. Pray and ask God for forgiveness and receive His new way of life.
