Change your life, not just your clothes. Joel 2:13-14(MSG)
This statement was made by God Almighty using Joel to warn the isrealites who had a tradition of tearing their clothes to show repentance or to plead for forgiveness when they commit sin.
It became a normal thing for the isrealites to tear their clothes and some persons misused it even when they were not sorry. God speaking through Joel told the isrealites to stop tearing their clothes instead they should tear HEARTS.
Repentance From The Heart.
It is for You and I to always show repentance not the outward look, for people to know you are sorry but repentance that comes from the heart that God sees and above all we will recieve forgiveness… “Seek God while he’s here to be found, pray to him while he’s close at hand. Let the wicked abandon their way of life and the evil their way of thinking. Let them come back to God , who is merciful, come back to our God, who is lavish with forgiveness”. Isaiah 55:6-7 MSG
