Hey Backslider…

You’re not that far from home! You know, like the Prodigal Son story in the Bible? Remember when he hit bottom, lost everything, got hungry and wanted to eat pig food? Well the good news is, he came to himself. Just like you. Remember…

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When you start getting hungry.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When your pride gets out of the way.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When your thoughts turn towards home.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When you come to yourself.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When you get up.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When you start coming home.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When the Father is watching for you.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When the Father runs to meet you.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When you humble yourself.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When you say you’re sorry.

You’re Not That Far From Home When: When you wrap your arms around each other.

See, I told you that you’re not that far from home. Oh, and did you know your Father’s been looking for you too? Your place is sitting empty at the table. We all can’t wait to see you!

Come On Home!
