Return to Me and I Will Return to You

“The Lord has been very angry with your fathers. Therefore say to them, ’Return to Me,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘and I will return to you.’”  (Zechariah 1:2-3)

We are being offered a marvelous and merciful window of opportunity to demonstrate corporate repentance and prayer on Sunday, July 5.  While there are many fine movements and agendas of political concern and action asking for attention and participation, the simple Call2Fall on Sunday, July 5 – the day after the United States celebrates her God-endowed liberty and freedom – represents a diverse coalition of leaders spanning many denominations, parachurch ministries and ethnic backgrounds.  Call2Fall represents a public show of the John 17 unity that IS promised and IS rising in the Bible-believing body of Christ!

Even as our nation languishes in deep moral decline and economic judgments, the Holy Spirit is working to bring forth the fulfillment of Jesus’ High Priestly prayer recorded in John 17.  Our Call2Fall observance is a demonstration of the Church functioning in common regard, love, service and harmony – the “one new man” God intended us to be.  (Ephesians 2:15, 4:13-16)

Repentance is the first word of Jesus’ gospel!  (Matthew 4:17)  Re-turning to Abba, our Father, and seeking His forgiveness, cleansing and a life of righteousness through the atoning death and transforming grace of Jesus our Messiah is to be the normal daily lifestyle for every follower and disciple of Christ.

Let us “bow low,” confess our sins, and seek the face of God together on July 5.  Our Lord’s awesome promise remains:  “If we re-turn to Him, He will return to us!”

Let us not miss this opportunity teach our children repentance by example on July 5.  Please spread the word, register and participate.
