A fresh start begins with repentance. Cyle Abbott held up a gas station so he could use the cash to get a “fresh start” in another town. A few hours later, he returned to the gas station and returned the cash he hadn’t already spent and apologized for robbing the store.—Jim L. Wilson
Abbott’s fresh start did not happen in a new town; it began when he returned the stolen goods and surrendered to police. For it to be complete, he needs to turn to God.
Acts 3:19 (HCSB) Therefore repent and turn back, so that your sins may be wiped out, that seasons of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,
