“It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.” (2 Peter 2:22)

There are those for whom salvation will not happen.  It is not that the Lord has not done for them what needs to be done, but that they will not accept and receive what He has done, nor live in the promise of what He has done.  This is the only place where we can truly exercise free will.  We can reject the salvation of Christ.  Leave behind rejection of the Lord and come under the yoke the Lord gives you and learn from Him.

Lord, You told me to take Your yoke upon me and learn from You.  I see those around me who act as if they already know all that needs to be known.  Help me to not go down that path.  Lead me into being one who is true to You and does not deceive himself.  Help me understand that in You is all hope and the only future worth living.  Guide me in Your goodness to remain firmly in Your forgiveness.

Lead me, Lord Jesus, in the way of everlasting life.  Help me now and always to know that You have come to give life.   True life is not found in this world of death.  A life worth living is found only in You.  Lead me ever deeper into Your likeness that I may grow into the everlasting life You are giving me.  Guide me now and always to hold fast to what You have given me through grace.  Lead me, Lord, according to Your purpose.  Amen.
