Every person is obligated to repent before he or she can enter into the kingdom of God. We must grow to hate sin so that it brings us great joy to walk away from it.
READ: Luke 5:31-32; Luke 15:8-10; Luke 15:11-24; Luke 16:19-31; Acts 3:18-21; 2 Pet. 3:9.
HEART ISSUE: Am I ready to look at sin in my life the way God looks at it?
PRAYER FOCUS: Lord Jesus, please forgive my sinful resistance to You and cleanse me with Your blood. Amen.
God will reveal a certain habit or sin to a Christian and require her to cut that thing out of her life. The ability to yield that one thing is the test of her obedience and genuine remorse for sin.
HEART ISSUE: Is there something I am holding on to that the Holy Spirit says I must let go?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, I yield to You on every point until my conscience is clear. I surrender everything gladly. Amen.
