Encouragement to Return to God

" [W]hatever be the departure of a backsliding child of God, it is recoverable: not a step has he lost but may be retraced; not a grace has decayed but may be restored; not a joy has fled but may be won back …. [F]or every poor, self-condemned, heart-broken, returning soul, there is a lingering affection in the heart of the Father, a welcome in the blood of Jesus, and a restorative power in the operation of the Spirit, and therefore every encouragement to arise and to come to God."

– Octavius Winslow, Personal Declension and Revival of Religion in the Soul (The Banner of Truth Trust, reprinted 2000) p. 27
