I love to see people coming back to the Lord.Some times, I wonder what make people go back to their old ways. After knowing the love of God and the eternal salvation that comes from the Son! what make them draft away.
This verse can explain why many Christians go through these trials...
Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.
The enemy doesn't want us to built a relationship with our Savior, when the enemy realize that he has lost another soul to God, he gets angry and he starts lying to us he tried to convince people that Christianity is the wrong way to go.
This is how we find out if the word of God is like the seed the fell in good ground.
But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands [it], who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."
What kind of seed are you? How is your relationship with God?
Do not waist time trying to find out if this church is bigger or smaller, or what denomination is better, these things are man made...our time here in this earth is short, don't be confuse with something so shallow and unimportant. If your heart is in the right place God will give you the Holly Spirit for you to have wisdom and nothing in this world will hinder your salvation.
Be like the prodigious son who repented of his sins, who came back to the Father with a humble heart.
God will through a party in Heaven and the Angels will rejoice when you are ready to come back. The Lord is waiting on you...
Luke 15:21And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.'
Luke 15:22"But the father said to his servants, 'Bring [fn] out the best robe and put [it] on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on [his] feet.
Luke 15:24for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' And they began to be merry.
