Christ-followers will often use the word ‘repent’. It’s a churchy kind of word that simply means “turn around”. When we repent of our sin, we are willingly turning away from it and walking the other way.
Joel, the Old Testament prophet, called the people of Judah to turn around, to repent, from the sin that was keeping them from a full relationship with God. The consequence of messing around with other countries in political allegiances was what Joel pictured as an army of locusts in our text, Joel 1.13-2.11.
