Giving Repentance and Forgiveness of Sins to God's Chosen People

Giving Repentance and Forgiveness of Sins to God's Chosen People



Let's Pray:

Lord, do cleanse us again with Your precious blood that we may have a clear conscience with a crystal clear spirit in our fellowship. Give us step by step all the things that we need.

Hymn:255
Key Verse:

Acts 5:31

This One God has exalted to His right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

Footnotes:

To give repentance and forgiveness of sins to God’s (chosen) people requires Christ to be exalted as a ruling Leader and Savior. His (sovereign) ruling causes and leads God’s chosen people to (repent), and His salvation, which is based on His redemption, affords them (forgiveness) of sins.

Repentance is for (forgiveness) of sins (Mark 1:4). On God's side, forgiveness of sins is based on Christ’s (redemption) (Eph. 1:7); on man's side, forgiveness of sins is through man’s (repentance).
(Obedience) is the way and the condition for one to receive and enjoy the Spirit of God.(See Acts 5:31 note 3, note 4; 32 note 3)
