So you have a past. A past that includes actions and behaviour that have clouded your spirit, have separated you from God, which make you feel rotten to the core. But now you regret what you’ve done; you want to repent.
Apostle Paul was speaking here to some who had once lived deeply in sin, but when they heard the truth of the gospel, they acknowledged their sin and surrendered their life to Jesus. Not only were they forgiven, but they received help from the Holy Spirit to be finished with these sins and live a transformed life.
God said, “I know the plans I have for you, … plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11, ). That’s what God says. He’s not here to condemn you. He’s here to bless you and love you and take you into His arms and say, “I forgive you. I’ll change your life.
If you want a change in your life, if you want peace and joy that you’ve never known before, God demands total surrender. He becomes the Lord and the ruler of your life.
