Paul’s message. May 18
But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. Acts 26:20
This one verse sums up Paul’s message. Repent: means to change direction, to turn from a sinful lifestyle.
Turn to God: sometimes man just wants help in one area or another. So their willing to turn from a particular sin or habit. But Paul’s message was to turn to God, completely. To give ones life, with every area to His Lordship.
Do works: then his message was begin to live the life that was worthy of God. Thru prayer, pureness, study of Gods word, giving, witnessing, whatever service God may have us to do.
These things would show they had truly turned to God. And they still show a life that is worthy.
