January 11, 2019: A Way to Return


Jeremiah 15:19 (NIV)
19  Therefore this is what the LORD says: “If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve me; if you utter worthy, not worthless, words, you will be my spokesman. Let this people turn to you, but you must not turn to them.


Jeremiah was filled with grief at the sight of such judgments that had fallen on Jerusalem because of her sins.  His day was a day of distress and gloom. Take a close look at the promise in this text.  “If you repent, I will restore you so that you may serve me.”

What are the conditions on which God will receive us?  It is only one condition, one word.  Repent!  Take a good look at how you have dishonored God and repent.  Now see the promise, He will restore you.  He will give back to you all that you lost and then some.

This is our God, so why do we hesitate in repenting?

Now is the best time to repent.  Turn back to Him and see what he will do in restoring your joy and your life.
