Beware Backsliding

01 November 2020



Jeremiah 3:12


Israel is called out in Jeremiah 3:12 for their backsliding and implored to return to truly following God. We find ourselves prone to the same behavior of gradually turning from God when we become lax in our pursuit of Him or even blatantly practice sinful behavior. And just as the Lord called Israel to turn back Him, we find grace and mercy when we do the same.
