Daily Meeting Place
A Call to Repentance
Today's Passage: Joel 2:12-17
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
God uses characters and jobs to prepare our hearts for truth.
12. That is why the LORD says, "Turn to me now; while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning.
13. Don't tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead." Return to the LORD your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.
14. Who knows? Perhaps he will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. Perhaps you will be able to offer grain and wine to the LORD your God as before.
15. Blow the ram's horn in Jerusalem? Announce a time of fasting; call the people together for a solemn meeting.
16. Gather all the people ⏤ the elders, the children, and even the babies. Call the bridegroom from his quarters and the bride from her private room.
17. Let the priests, who minister in the LORD'S presence, stand and weep between the entry room to the Temple and the altar. Let the pray, "Spare your people, LORD! Don't let them become a joke for unbelieving foreigners who say, 'Has the God of Israel left them?' "
Joel 2:12-17 NLT
