A Voice from the Past - Spurgeon

Dogs, and even swine, are more likely to eturn home than wandering sheep. But now, beloved, though we have wandered, we have returned and still do return to our Shepherd. Like Noah's dove, we have found no rest anywhere outside the ark; and therefore we return to Him, and He graciously pulls us in to Himself. If we wander at any time, we bless God that there is something sacred within us that will not let us rest, and that there is a far more powerful Something above us that draws us back.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-1892, Joy in Christ's Presence, The Sin Bearer, (Whittaker House, 1997, p. 199)

How does God act to pull us back to Himself? What are the implications of this for our life?
