Matt 3 v 1-2: In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, (2) and saying, "Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand!"
Eph 4 v 23-24: and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, (24) and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in righteousness and true holiness.
Ps 51 v 10: Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Ps 51 v 17: Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with Your generous Spirit.
Ps 85 v 6: Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?
Repent - Renewed - Restored - Revived
Relationship - righteousness - rejoicing - reward!
You know that scripture in Phil 4 v 8: Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things.
Well, hopefully you will only ever think positive things with R in the future!
Relationship, redemption, return, renew, revive, restore, good report, rejoice, release, righteousness, reward, etc...
