The Call to Come Home

Two songs that I've been listening to lately and wanted to share, nothing profound to say about them, but both make me think of the story of the prodigal son and the more prodigal Father.



The first one is Home by Josh Garrels.  Listen here.

Come on home, home to me
And I will hold you in my arms
And joyful be.
There will always, always be
A place for you at my table
Return to me.

The second one is If You Ever Come Back by The Script.  Listen/watch the music video here.

I'll leave the door on the latch
If you ever come back, if you ever come back
There'll be a light in the hall and the key under the mat
If you ever come back
There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on
And it will be just like you were never gone
There'll be a light in the hall and the key under the mat
If you ever come back, if you ever come back now.

This is an amazing sort of love, and it amazes me how many places we get to see it -- in God, but also in human relationships.  It's a kind of love that I want to live out well.

In small group last year, we talked about repentance in the context of God's call to us to Come home.  I think that I know, theoretically, that God has this amazing sort of love for us, but it's something that I hope sinks more and more deeply into my heart over the rest of my life.
