“Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.” (Ruth 1:6).

At one time or the other, a natural man undertakes a dangerous journey since he is not being guided by the Spirit of God. But what makes a difference is the ability of those who may have embarked on such journeys to return to their original point. Man was made in God’s image but he deviated and took a journey into sin; but it takes the shed blood of Jesus Christ to cause man to return to his Maker. Hence, the plea, “Return, O backsliding Israel”.

There are many people today who have strayed and wandered away from God into a strange land but have no intention to return home. They may have embarked on such a dangerous journey in search of pleasure and freedom. But in the process, they lost everything and are ashamed to return home. Naomi decided to return home. She knew that home must always be home. The prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32) knew that there’s a difference between home and strange land. He decided to return to his father, even though he had messed up.

Dear friend, wherever you may be outside God’s embrace, He expects you to return. There is still room for you in your Father’s house.

Jesus is calling all prodigal sons and daughters to return home for there is now abundance in our Father’s house. Naturally, when a prodigal son returns, some would make jest of him and wonder why he decided to return. But those who commend the decision to return are always in the majority. When a sinner or backslider returns to the fold of God’s children, Satan and his agents are not always happy. But there is always joy in heaven and among brethren that a sinner has come home.

*THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:* Why not return to the Lord now?

Paul the Poke

Habakkuk 1:5 Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told. -LORD God
