Yes, again. We repent to receive the Lord’s forgiveness for our sins but we must keep a clean slate between us. That’s why Christians need to repent for any sins committed on a daily basis.
Even the most mature of us harbour unconscious sin, that is sin the Holy Spirit hasn’t even revealed to us yet. None of us can say truthfully that we are free of sin. (Proverbs 20:9)
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. (1 John 1:8, NIV)
Daily repentance is necessary so that we can maintain our close relationship with God, our father.
Prayer – Lord, we repent of ____________________ and turn to you so that our sins may be wiped out and that you might send us a time of refreshing. Thank you. Amen (from Acts 3:19)
