Come Home

“Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out Your decrees.” -Psalm 119:155

Salvation is far from those who reject God as Truth. Their hearts are hard, their spiritual eyes are blind. Oh that they might draw near to God, to “taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him” (Psalm 34:8). We all like sheep have gone astray, each determining what is right in our own eyes, forming ourselves and other things into little gods. But God, in His rich mercy, saved His elected saints, bringing His children into the Shepherd’s fold, adopted forever as His sons and daughters. We are the ones who are being made truly alive each day, to reflect our Eternal King. Christian, take joy in the gift of your salvation. This is the closest to Hell you will ever be. 

Those who have no appetite for God will be given over to their lusts. Sin, deceit and confusion will rule the rebellious heart (Romans 1:18-32). It should break the heart of every believer to see someone revel in lies. It was never meant to be this way. Yet because we live under a Curse, Jesus came to set us free. For those who belong to Christ Jesus, you are now no longer under condemnation, but grace. His set love is on you, His mercy is unending. 

But how will anyone know they are lost if they do not first hear about God? How will they ever know to seek Someone they have not heard? This is why evangelism is needed. Christians are to proclaim the Good News to others so they too might hear and repent. We cannot save, for this is the Lord’s work. We are simply called to be faithful with what we know to be true. Go and tell. Live out the Gospel truth that through Jesus’ sacrifice of His own body, redeemed sinners are forgiven, because of God’s mercy. Jesus Christ is the only way to have eternal peace and fellowship with God (John 14:6). Jesus “has made perfect forever those who are being made holy” (Hebrews 10:14). If you have never trusted in the saving and finished work of Christ I implore you to go to Jesus today. He is waiting for you to come Home.

Grace upon grace,


Growing deeper: Isaiah 53; 55; Romans 10:14-17; Ephesians 1-2:10

  1. The song, was beautiful, the phrase, But God,… it’s well it IS mercy. Thank you Lord. What a wonderful way to make such a profound statement and yet a plea to, come home. I look forward to these precious gems.
