Turn around (Geoff Snook)

Turn around (Geoff Snook)

This week we confront the reality of sin in our lives and the necessity of turning away from it. The letter of 1 John helps us understand the power of God in our repentance. Through self-reflection, confession and forgiveness we’ll learn to let go of past mistakes and embrace the healing, restoration and freedom found in Christ.

Our series is called ‘Repentance + Renewal: re-align your heart with God’s heart.’ You can find the practice guide for this series here: https://thelakes.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/Transformation-Trek-Repentance-and-Renewal.pdf

‘Repentance’ is a complex idea. It can make us think about angry and urgent calls to turn our life around or risk fiery consequences. Or it can make us think about quick apologies after childish mistakes. True repentance is so much more than this. It is about heartfelt regret for straying from God’s path, accepting his forgiveness and being marked by a transformation of our heart, mind and life.

This season of the Transformation Trek is an invitation for deep and honest reflection. Throughout April we will explore the call of Jesus for a heart change and a turning away from sin in our everyday lives.
