Time to Repent

let us return to the Lord;

   for it is he who has torn, and he will heal us;

   he has struck down, and he will bind us up.

After two days he will revive us;

   on the third day he will raise us up,

   that we may live before him.

Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord;

   his appearing is as sure as the dawn;

he will come to us like the showers,

   like the spring rains that water the earth.’

What shall I do with you, O Ephraim?

   What shall I do with you, O Judah?

Your love is like a morning cloud,

   like the dew that goes away early.

Therefore I have hewn them by the prophets,

   I have killed them by the words of my mouth,

   and my judgement goes forth as the light.

For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice,

the knowledge of God rather than burnt-offerings.

~~~Hosea 6:1-6

What is God leading you to repent from this Advent?


Lord, Help me to look deeply into myself as I ponder the need to repent. Too often we see repentance as something for the other. Guide me to see my need.
