Bible Reading: James 5.19-20
My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth and one turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. James 5.19-20
We have all lost our way a time or two (Guys, blame Google maps if you want). When have you come the closest to wandering from the faith? What or who helped bring you back?
As we look at the most loved verse from Robert Robinson’s hymn, “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” may it spur us into action:
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
Take some time to meditate on this verse. You may even want to listen to this old hymn online or listen to a more modern version by your favorite artist. Thank God for His relentless pursuit of you when you stray and ask Him to help you be an encourager to others when they stray as well.
