DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JANUARY 8, 2018
Zec 1:2-5 Yahweh was very angry with your forefathers. Therefore, tell the people: This is what Yahweh Almighty says: ‘Return to me,’ declares Yahweh Almighty, ‘and I will return to you,’ says Yahweh Almighty. Do not be like your forefathers, to whom the earlier prophets proclaimed: This is what Yahweh Almighty says: ‘Turn from your evil ways and your evil practices.’ But they would not listen or pay attention to me, declares Yahweh. Where are your forefathers now? And the prophets, do they live forever?
Man is mortal. Death is a part of life and will come to all. It is unavoidable. The question for each one to contemplate is will a return to Yahweh precede death? Change is only possible while you still have life. Yahweh has been warning man to turn from wickedness and evil. Most refuse. Most do not listen to the warnings. Most resist adjusting or changing their life, personality, character, or behavior in order that it lines up with the Biblical description of the True Worshiper. Now is the time to turn to Yahweh—today! Take advantage of His availability. When you return to Him, He will return to you.
