Mark 1:1-13

When John was sent to prepare the way for Jesus, he preached “a baptism of repentance.” Before sins can be forgiven there must be repentance: a complete turning of heart and mind toward God. It is in the act of repentance that our hearts are primed for the work of God to forgive our sins, made possible through Jesus’ death and resurrection.

While Jesus’ sacrifice was “once for all,” it is important for us to live in a consistent spirit of repentance. This simply means living in humility understanding that God is always prompting us and teaching us in His way. A life lived in repentance keeps in view that there are a million things every day competing for my loyalty and that above all I want my heart and mind directed toward God. Is there anything in your life tempting you to veer off the course and move another direction? Choose repentance and let God guide you back onto the path of righteousness!
