Return To Me And I Will Return To You
Malachi 3:7 KJVEven from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
Luke 15:22-24 KJVBut the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:  And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:  For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
How To Reconnect With God After Backsliding
Revelation 2:4-5 KJVNevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
- How can I reconnect with God?
Here's the key to reconnecting with God: do the first works. Get back to doing those things which you used to do that made God happy. The very things that made you a fireful Christian, get back to doing them. Pick up from where you stopped in your relationship with God.
Benefits of Returning To God
