Return ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backsliding. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God. ~ Jeremiah 3:22 KJV
I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him. ~ Hosea 14:4 KJV
~ Do you see God’s love was for us even in the Old Testament? He kept asking the people to turn towards Him and He would heal the problem. He wanted to spend time with them but they were the ones who turned away. This still happens today! And He is still patiently calling us to Him. I can see why there is rejoicing in heaven when 1 person gets saved. It’s a reunion! Share the good news with people and if you do it right (with love) they will want to return to Him too! Love breaks all bondage and crosses all boundaries. Let’s love on our backsliding brothers and sisters and they will remember the One who loves them most.
