The Feast of Trumpets – Days of Awe 2…
Listen to the sound of the shofar!
Come, and let us return to the Lord; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight.
Peter said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”
Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah is not just a day. It begins a season reminding us of our need to confess our sins. Believe it or not, repentance is a privilege in the covenant between a holy God and His people. We are not holy. We continually fail to obey His laws of holiness also given in the covenant. The one law that must never be broken, however, is repentance when we know we have sinned. If we reject this part of His covenant with us, we have no part with Him.
Psalm 139 and Psalm 51* might be good to examine right now and include in your prayer life from now on. If you have a broken relationship with another person, now is the time to ask God’s wisdom and help in resolving any bitterness that separates you.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
–1 John 1:9
