My Daily Devotional


Softly And Tenderly

” For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.”
Luke 15:24

As I was growing up one of my favorite old hymns was “Softly and Tenderly”, which was usually sung at the end of the church service, when the altar call was given. The words now mean much more to me than they did then, as they applied to me personally all throughout my life. Even though I always went to church when I was young, and after Margaret and I were married, she always insisted that we attend church. I went through the motions of being a Christian during these years, but my heart was never in it. The words of the song are “softly and tenderly Jesus is calling, he’s calling for you and for me”. These words were so true as Jesus was softly and tenderly calling for me to come home. It took over 40 years of my life before I accepted this call and gave my life to Christ and came home, but I am so glad that I did, as my life has never been the same since. Look at the words of this beautiful song below, and let its words minister to your heart, as these precious words will tell you that Jesus is also waiting for you to come home.

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
calling for you and for me;
see, on the portals he’s waiting and watching,
watching for you and for me.
Come home, come home;
ye who are weary come home;
earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
calling, O sinner, come home!

I pray that God will speak to your heart today about coming home, as He is also waiting to rejoice in your homecoming.
