    When the holidays of Christmas and the holy week come around, I cannot help but wonder what the general population thinks about the spiritual significance of these events. I realize that Christians are more involved with these celebrations because of their personal connection with Jesus Christ, but we must also admit there are many different levels of commitment and enthusiasm.

    Repentance is a common theme throughout the Old and New Testaments. Isaiah 55:7 declares, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to the Lord.” Matthew 4:17 says, “From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

    The most common translation of the word “repent” means to turn or return and more specifically, from a theological perspective, it represents turning away from evil and turning to God.

    Recently, my wife Cheryl was talking about the need to increase her prayer time, and I was definitely agreeing that praying is very important in our spiritual life. In the middle of our conversation, she said, “we should turn our cares into prayers” and that instantly caught my attention. I love catchy phrases and told her that I just might borrow that slogan!
