Wherein Shall We Return?
"Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from my ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return." Malachi 3:7. When we err against God, we remove ourselves from God. We must return unto God so that our relationship with Him can be mended. These people of God had departed from Him because they refused to keep His ordinances. God has given commandments that we are to keep. The obedience to these commandments keeps us in union with Him. But, our disobedience to His ordinances will result in our departure from Him. We can depart from God. When such a condition occurs, we must return. God will not make us remain faithful unto Him. But, God will always allow us to return. If we err from God, we must return in faith and repentance. We must turn from the evil way which we have chosen, and embrace once again His ordinances. When we return to God, God will return to us.
