YOU MUST DEAL WITH IT! Whether we are Christians or non-Christians we need to deal with our sin in order to find refreshing of our soul. The Apostle Peter in his great sermon revealed to us in Acts chapter 3 said this, "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord," (Acts 3:19 NIV). Non-Christian people are looking for refreshment of their soul but they tend to look in all the wrong places; mainly to the multitude of religious systems created by mankind. True refreshment of our soul can only come from God because only He can deal with our sins through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved,” (Romans 10:13 NIV).
Christian people who sin (don't we all?) will only have continual refreshment of our soul as we do what the Apostle John said concerning sin, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness," (1 John 1:9 NIV). For the Christian sin does not cause a loss of relationship with God but it certainly does cause a loss of joyous fellowship and refreshing of our soul. Sin is a problem for everyone. We must deal with it! Repentance, confession, forgiveness, and purification are the answer to refreshment of the soul for everyone. God is good and has supplied the answer for us all through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
