CROWNS OF FAITH
PREPARE. RESTORE. CONQUER. 🏹
“Faith can move mountains.
So why are you stumbling on a little rock?”
Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. ACTS 2:38
The Greek word translated “repentance” in the New Testament means “to change one’s way of life as the result of a complete change of thought and attitude with regard to sin and righteousness.” Repentance is a significant, personal, life-changing decision that leads to baptism and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:37-39). Repentance is characterized by an understanding of the seriousness of sin (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-3), a deep desire to be forgiven (Psalm 51:1-3; Hebrews 9:14) and a determined commitment to change behavior and thoughts in order to stop sinning (Matthew 3:8; Acts 26:19-20).
The apostle Paul emphasized that “godly sorrow” produces genuine repentance, which results in permanent changes that ultimately lead a person toward salvation, in contrast to “the sorrow of the world,” which does not result in permanent change and leads to death (2 Corinthians 7:10). Verse 11 highlights the diligent effort and vehement desire to change that godly sorrow produces.
I believe in You as God!
I believe that You created me and all things.
I come to You in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
I acknowledge that I have shunned Your love and lived in sin.
I repent of each and every one of my sins.
Please forgive me and come into my heart.
Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ,
to die for me, to save me from eternal death and Hell.
I choose this day to enter into a covenant of FAITH
with You and to place Jesus at the center of my life.
I surrender to Him as Lord and Savior.
I ask You now to flood my soul with the gift of the Holy Spirit
so that my life may be transformed and renewed.
Give me the grace, courage and FAITH I need
to live as a disciple in Your Church forever.
