Should I stop worrying
That you are teetering on the edge,
When the world means more
Than following Christ instead?
Should I just leave you alone
And stop longing for your return,
Since you seem happy far from home
And seem content to stay lukewarm?
The truth is that I will never give up
Or stop praying because, you see,
Heaven and hell are both real
And last for an eternity.
“It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment“
“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.”
1 Peter 4:7
Like me, do you have a prodigal who has wandered far from home? Are you unsure about the certainty of their salvation? No matter what the circumstances look like, purpose in your heart never to give up. Instead, keep praying and believing for their return to Christ.
God loves His prodigals. He never gives up on them.
