He wants you back...every time!

God's people had been taken into captivity by their enemy as punishment for continued rebellion and unfaithfulness to their faithful and loving God. But even while under the rule of a foreign regime, the Lord never stopped pleading with His wayward Judah to return to Him. His promise and plea:  "Please come back! Keep My commandments! Let's be like we were before--you be My people and I'll be your God!" (paraphrase of Ezek. 11:19-20).

Do you know that God longs for that very same thing today, and He makes that very same promise to us? No matter what is in our past, He pleads with us to turn to Him and keep His commandments. When we do, He will remember our sins "no more," and He promises, "I will be their God, and they shall be My people" (Heb. 8:10-12).

We serve an amazing God! Truly, "the Lord is good!" Truly, "His mercy is everlasting" (Psa. 100:5)!
