About what God’s expectation from us:


“What does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes which I command you today for your good”. (Deuteronomy 10:12-13).


About God’s efforts to draw us to Himself:


“Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea”. (Isaiah 48:18).

“I will not cause My anger to fall on you, for I am merciful,’ says the Lord; ‘I will not remain angry forever. Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the Lord your God, . . . and you have not obeyed My voice,’ says the Lord”. (Jeremiah 3:12 – 13).

“Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you”. (Isaiah 55:3).

“I have blotted out, like a thick cloud, your transgressions, and like a cloud, your sins … Return to Me, for I have redeemed you”. (Isaiah 44:22).

“He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom”. (Isaiah 40:11).

For thus says the Lord God: ‘Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out . . . I will feed My flock, and I will make them lie down,’ says the Lord God”. (Ezekiel 34:11).
