I live in an area where there are high temperatures and humidity during the summer. When I become hot and uncomfortable, I find ways to cool off. One way is to go into my house and turn on the air conditioner.
When we sin, the Holy Spirit makes us feel uncomfortable. He wants us to confess our sins to God and turn back to Him. In our Bible Reading today, Peter told a crowd of people what they needed to do. Verses 19-20a tell us, “So you must change your hearts and lives. Come back to God, and he will forgive your sins. Then the Lord will give you times of spiritual rest.”
When it is hot and humid, the air conditioner makes me feel cool and comfortable. In the same way, when we confess our sins and ask God to forgive us, we feel refreshed and rested.
If you have sin in your life, talk to God today. Ask Him to forgive you and make you feel peaceful again.
