Come back to God

Rembrandt’s Prodigal Son

We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”

2 Corinthians 5:20

“Idol worship is building your life and meaning on anything, even a very good thing, more than on God. Whatever we build our life on will drive us and enslave us. When you’re looking to your career, or your marriage, or your romance, or your friends to give you everything you should be looking for in God, you’re looking to idols. Making these good things into ultimate things is a misappropriation of your love. Love your uncreated God designed for you to devote to Him, is given instead to these created things. And the ultimate result is undue anxiety, drivenness, obsessiveness, envy of others, and resentment. It happens this way every time.” (excerpts from Keller)

Make your love for your Creator, Who is Himself uncreated, your first priority, for just a few months, and see what happens to your life.

You’ll be glad you did.

“Come back to God!”

2 Corinthians 5:20
