Homesick for God
Homesick for God uses these parables and similar biblical passages to reinforce the point that here is a God who looks for those who stray from home, who frequently rescues His children from impossible situations, and who forgives them with no recriminations.
Author Joel Gregory examines the motivations of spiritual separation and reunion and then explains how to turn a longing for God into a reconciliation and then how to cultivate "staying power" with God through appropriating His promises and trusting His Son.
There's a bit of the Prodigal Son in everyone, but like that youth's father, God does not want to write us off.
Gentle, firm, and consoling, Homesick for God will deepen your understanding of God's love and remedy even the most fervent case of spiritual homesickness.
