"Return to me and I will return to you."

Zech.1:3 Therefore, say to the people, “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Return to me, and I will return to you, says the LORD Almighty.’ ”

God is so gracious and good. He never turns anyone away who comes to Him in repentance. No matter who you are or what you have done, the Lord longs for your company. He wants to have fellowship with you. If you once knew the delight of God’s fellowship and have wandered away, return to Him and He will once again take you in. If you have been sucked into the world and have let your love for God die out, He loves you still and longs for you to return to Him. If you have spurned His love and sought after other things, He still loves you and longs for your return. The Lord’s love is eternal and unconditional. No matter what you may do, you cannot prevent God from loving you and longing for fellowship with you.

If you have never known the delight of living in fellowship with the Lord, now is the moment God has given you to come to Him. It may be the only chance you have left in your life. Don’t waste it. God loves you and longs to have fellowship with you. He invites you to come into His arms of love. Seek Him out right now while you can find Him. Confess your sins before Him and ask for His forgiveness. If you don’t know how, at all cost find someone today who can help you. The Lord is gracious and good. All who return to Him will find Him.  

However, a word of caution is in order. Just because God loves you unconditionally, do not think that He will take you in regardless whether you turn to Him or not. He has provided only one way for us to be taken into the fold of His love and that is through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son. If we could bypass Jesus, Jesus would have died for nothing. Life in God is reserved for those who come to Him through Jesus.  And, those who turn to Jesus must do so with no strings attached.  Give Him all your sins, all your heart, all your life, and you will be saved.
