The Answer to Unfaithfulness

Return, O faithless sons; I will heal your faithlessness. (Jeremiah 3:22)

We don't get faithfulness and then come to Christ. We come to Christ in order to get faithfulness. Have you grown weary in your battle against a sin your swore you'd never fall to again? Have you been distracted by the cares of this life? Has your affection for Jesus grown cold? Wait no longer! Run back to Him, and tell Him all your failings! To the weak, poor, and helpless, He bids come! To the Christian who has lost their affection He offers a promise - "I will heal your faithlessness." What an encouragement on a Monday afternoon.
