Acts 3:19 (NASB) "Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;"I couldn't just put the new plants and seeds in, I had to do the work in order to get the garden ready! Today's verse may seem to be speaking to someone else and not us but we must realize that we all sin and need to repent and return to the Lord for the refreshing times to come! I have learned over the years that just putting the plants and seeds in the ground will not be a good garden. Sure I'll get some produce but nothing like I could get if I did the proper work needed like tilling the soil, pulling out the weeds and adding fertilizer. In our life, we need to do the work, to clean out the bad habits, get the soil of our life up to where God can do amazing things and of course, the fertilizer (God's Word)! Doing the hard work now will have the best results later on so let's roll up our sleeves and get ready for the refreshing times coming from the Lord! peace, tom
