But those things, which GOD before had shewed by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ should suffer, He hath so fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And He shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which GOD hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. (Acts 3:18-21)
All Scripture speaks of Christ, He is on every page. We should have the same reverence for His Word as we do for Him, for they are intertwined. You can't truly know the Word of GOD, Jesus Christ; unless and until you learn of Him through the Word of GOD, the Bible. And then, as this passage relates, we repent when we understand ourselves; unrighteous sinners in need of a saviour, and understand Jesus, the righteous GOD-Man who gave Himself to save sinners.
Whether you are an long time saint who has strayed for the Father, or a lost sinner who has never known the Kingdom of GOD; the command is the same: Believe GOD's Word; Repent, that is surrender to GOD on His terms, and receive the forgiveness He has already paid for. For the saint, it is a time of refreshing and renewing as GOD cleanses us from our sIn. For the lost sinner, GOD makes you a new creature in Christ, and you are born again. GOD wants to forgive you, He loves you and wants what is best for you. No matter what your relationship with Him, He calls you to come to Him, and walk with Him by Faith daily.
I pray that you will respond to GOD and His Word today.
