By this time you may have already travelled a difficult and challenging road. There will have been doubts, fears and uncertainty - you have questioned yourself and others along the following lines:-
- do you really want to return to the church?
- do you really know that God loves you and has called you by name?
- do you know God wants you to live out your life in response to that call to holiness and your baptism into God’s “chosen race, royal priesthood, holy nation” (1 Pet 2:9)?
- do you want to respond generously to that call.?
If the call is there and you find yourself answering yes to these questions, then you may be ready now to offer yourself to God by returning to the church.
Through your baptism, you have already been welcomed into the life of grace.
Now you can offer yourself to Christ, and his body, the Church, once more.
