I’ve been reading through the Prophets in the Old Testament and have been struck by how many times God repeatedly asked His people to repent from their sins and humble themselves before Him. God used the prophets to actively warn the people that if they did not choose to return to Him, then they would face all of the consequences that God laid out before Moses and others.
God continues that same plea for us to turn from our sins and follow His plan for our lives. We have so many opportunities and God uses different ways to reach out to us. Although the Israelites learned their lesson the hard way, we can learn from their mistakes and repent and follow Jesus today. God loves us so much and wants us to love him back the best that we can.
