God Delights in Our Loyalty

September 11th, 2010


Hosea 6:1-7
“Music has always been my life,” Marci explained.

At the age of 7, she sang in church; and at 14, she entertained frequently in community events. She married a musician, who encouraged her to sing and even played in her band. However, when their first child was born, taking care of the child became too much of a sacrifice. In frustration, Marci left her family and went on tour, singing in large cities across South Africa.

Two years later, the response of the audience yelling her name brought little pleasure. Marci missed her family. She missed the church where she had first experienced the joy of singing. When the tour ended, Marci asked her husband if she could stay. When he saw that she was serious, he took her in his arms and said, “Welcome home.”

God asks us to return to Him just as we are. He requires nothing but our loyalty to Him.

    Such a wondrful, beautiful message for those who feel “too dirty & sinful” to turn (or return) to Jesus. He requires only that we accept His gift of Grace…and opens His arms in Love. God is good!
