“If you find yourself in a cycle of “rededication,” sadly to say, you may be deceiving yourself. If your life is not marked by genuine repentance, and a true desire to follow Jesus, and obey God’s word, you very well may be lost.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) A popular concept within evangelical churches, especially college-age and young adults, is the idea that one can “rededicate” their life to Christ….
The assumption is that he or she was saved at a young age, but either didn’t have a complete understanding of the grace of Christ, or has otherwise “fallen away” into an unrepentant sinful lifestyle, and now desires to return to Christ, and begin to follow Him again.
Some people may even turn to an endless cycle of sin and rededication, with multiple “rededications” over their lifetime. There are events that are devoted to rededication services, and some claim hundreds, or even thousands have “rededicated” their lives to Christ. But is this practice biblical, and does this concept exist in Scripture?
