This is a word the Lord gave me for all my friends, known and unknown, for those who have left Jesus for one reason or another, and for the weary and disheartened.
Return to Me my sons and daughters. Though your sins are as scarlet, I will make them white as new fallen snow. Though you have chased after others gods and drank from leaky cisterns with holes, I am calling you back to Me.
Come buy bread and wine that satisfy and meat that nourishes you. Come back to the foot of the cross and behold all I have done for you. Look upon My face, my hands and feet. I have suffered for you so that you could be cleansed from your iniquities—from prostrating yourself to the gods of convenience, comfort, self-indulgence and pleasure. These are but fleeting, temporary happiness.
I have deep joy and everlasting peace in My hands and riches for evermore. Do not exchange these for the false pleasures of the earth. Life passes quickly before your eyes and so with it all the things which once brought you happiness. Rely on Me; trust in Me once again.
I am the eternal source of all things good. Every good gift comes from heaven above.
Pleasures are but fleeting. Though you pursue them as lovers, they will both devour and evade you. Come sit with me again and hear My voice. Let Me wrap My arms around you. Gaze into My eyes and see the love pouring from Me to you. Contemplate all I have done for you. Come back to Me, my sons and daughters.
