Time to Repent

Thursday Week 1    December 3  

Templet for daily reading Week 1

Come, 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
judgment 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



Quote 4



Question – What is God leading you to repent from this Advent?



Prayer Thought

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.

Amen

Day 13 — Return with All Your Heart March 11

Day 13

Yet even now, says the Lord,
   return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
   rend your hearts and not your clothing.
Return to the Lord, your God,
   for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love,
   and relents from punishing.
Who knows whether he will not turn and relent,
   and leave a blessing behind him,
a grain-offering and a drink-offering
   for the Lord, your God?

—-Joel 2:12-14


Question- What are some ways my heart must change to return to the Lord?


Prayer – LORD, I do not want to be separated from you but find that there are times that you seem so far away. Teach me this day a sincerity of heart that will enable me to approach you in those far away times. Convict my heart so that I may see my need to change. I offer this prayer today. Amen
