Return, Israel, to the Lord your God. Your sins have been your downfall! Take words with you and return to the Lord. Say to him: “Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips.
The message of repentance comes loud and clear throughout history to reflect and highlight God’s redemptive plan for His people. The prayer offered in today’s verse is a great reminder of exactly what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross. His sacrifice, once and for all, allows us to praise God and offer our lives to God. God has come through on His promise to save, and it has been done through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. It is never too late to run to Jesus and fall at the throne of grace. Surrender all to Christ for He is ever faithful.
