Fear of God Devotional: The Offense of Reformation Without Repentance

Is it possible to have true reformation in our lives and within our churches without repentance?

Anthony Mathenia explains in this video that true, biblical reformation cannot happen apart from repentance. Trying to change our own lives through our own strength will not work. We cannot fight sin in our lives without God.  

To bring about lasting, biblical reformation, we need people to come into contact with God and realize that their sin is an offense. They must turn from their sin and follow Christ. It is only then that there can be salvation and a continous reformation of the way we live. 

Acts 3:19 (NKJV) – “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”
