Acts 3:19–Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
Peter is sharing with the crowd that has gathered after the beggar has been healed. He shares with the people the message of Jesus Christ, letting them know that they, too, can be refreshed by God. Our sins and wrongs weigh us down. They are cumbersome to carry and hold on to. In order to be truly refreshed, we must allow God to cleanse us from our sins and wipe them out. Do we feel down-trodden? Perhaps there is sin in our life that we need to confess and turn over to God.
Father, You are the only true source of refreshing. You take my sins and wipe them out leaving me free to rejoice and praise You. Help me review my life to find anything in it that has not been turned over to You. Refresh me again today!
