You’ve got a long way to go19 January 2023
You’ve decided to go to God to be cleansed, but that doesn’t mean that you’ve already been cleansed. The thing is to return to God and be firm; your soul will be cleansed, little by little. God accepts your repentance, forgives you, but after many years you’ll see how superficial this repentance was. Of course, there was a jot of sincerity, but it only went so far. You’ve still got a long way to go.
