Ruth | Lesson 2 | Returning
This week we talked about the wanderer’s return trip to the home of the Father. While we may expect the return to take as long as the wandering, for a 5-year wander to merit a 5-year return, or that we have to clean ourselves up and work ourselves back to a place where we’re somehow worthy of the return. But that is not the gospel. That is not the God who calls us to Himself. As soon as we turn our hearts toward home, we find, to the wanderer’s great relief, that though we thought we’d left Him, the Father had never left us. And the return trip is over as soon as it began.
