'He calls for you to come home'
A song for those seeking a fresh encounter with God and a call for the prodigals to come home is the new release from UK worship leader and songwriter Luke Wareham
Come Home came about as Luke, of Clevedon Baptist Church in Somerset, was reading and reflecting on the story of the prodigal son in the Bible while songwriting with his wife Katie and friend Matt Caddick. (Matt is pastor at Counterslip Baptist Church in South Bristol).
Luke says ‘Psalm 55 and Matthew 11 describe a loving God who is kind, will never leave us and is willing to take on our burdens just like the Father does in the prodigal son story. He doesn't turn him away, he calls for him to come home and desires to take care of his child.'
The song features renowned songwriter and recording artist Marc James.
Come Home is part of Luke’s new five track EP ‘Pure Heart’ that will be released 12 August, produced by Dan Stirling, mastered by Tim Gosden and distributed via Wings Music Group.
The EP will feature collaborations with Chris Sayburn, Donna Akodu, Lou Fellingham, Marc James and Michelle Lutz.
Luke’s prayer in releasing the songs is that they would 'help people to have life changing encounters with Jesus, that connect them to the heart of God for their life and that the songs will speak into everyday life situations.'
Ultimately his hope is that the songs will draw people to Jesus.
Come Home is available to stream and download on all music platforms and the new lyric and acoustic videos are on Luke’s YouTube channel. The chords to the song are available to download via SongSelect CCLI.
