Returning Time

By Tom Siebert

Tyrone Davis famously sang, “We would have a love so divine if I could turn back the hands of time.” Next fall we will get back the hour that we gave up early this morning. But only God can really turn back time. As He promised the ancient Israelites: “I will restore to you the years that the swarming locusts have eaten” (Joel 2:25). God can restore the years we have lost to sin by granting us eternal time with Him, if we ask for forgiveness and receive His Son Jesus Christ as our resurrected Savior.
