The Lord calls us from our Backsliding

Jeremiah 2:31-4:9; Philippians 2:12-30; Psalm 115:12-18

The Lord calls us back from our backsliding: “Return, faithless people; I will cure you of backsliding” (Jeremiah 3:22). The returning people say, “Yes, we will come to You, for You are the Lord our God … surely in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel” (Jeremiah 3:22-23). As we return to the Lord, He gives us this calling: “Become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life” (Philippians 2:15-16). To those who return to the Lord and seek to live as His holy people, the Lord gives His promise of blessing – “The Lord remembers us and will bless us … He will bless those who fear the Lord – small and great alike” (Psalm 115:12-13).
