Chronological Bible: July 4, Only return…
- Jeremiah 3:1-4:31
“Return, O faithless sons; I will heal your faithlessness.”
“Behold, we come to you, for you are the Lord our God.”
–Jeremiah 3:22, ESV
Each of us has been faithless. Our flesh is not eradicated this side of heaven; we still do, as Paul describes, what we do not want. And in all the laments of Jeremiah, this gem shines forth as a spotlight. We need not fix our depravity, our sin, our faithlessness. We only need to return. For He will heal our faithlessness. He will make us whole. We need not try to make ourselves new, for that can be done by Him alone. Only return to the Lord. You need only to return.
