Times of Refreshing

"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."
~ Acts 3:19 (NKJV)

"As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent... To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne." ~ Revelation 3:19,21 (NKJV)

Few would disagree that the American church needs revival—a fresh infusion of the Holy Spirit to inflame our hearts. The path to times of refreshing is repentance of sin.

There is no condemnation to those in Christ. Our sins are indeed covered by the blood of Jesus. And they're still every bit as detestable as they were before Christ owned us. Until we reach heaven, we will need to regularly confess and repent of sin.

Jesus, thank You for salvation. Please give us fresh eyes each day to see the darkness of sin. Let its stench compel us to be washed with the water of Your Word. Manifest Your Spirit in us as we respond to You. Please bring times of refreshing to Your church.

  1. Please refresh our souls Lord.

  2. Yes, the American church desparateley needs a revival, we have grown very lukewarm and complacent.

  3. JC, our lukewarm condition is at a state of crisis. I have more to say about that on the next Friday Freelance, FINAL COST PART II.
