RECONCILIATION, RESTORATION and RESPONSIBILITY

Men ought to seek restoration and the will of God every day.  We fall short of the glory of God, because of sin. If there was no sin, we would not need to be restored.  But, the imagination of the heart of man is evil; and sin has separated man from God.  As long as we are in our sin we are the ENEMIES of God.  Reconciliation must come before restoration.  The relationship between man and God must CHANGE.  Without change there is no restoration.   The redemptive work of Christ at Calvary made it possible for man to have a FELLOWSHIP with God.  And you have the responsibility of CHOICE.   You can choose to remain in your sinful condition or be restored by accepting Christ as your personal Savior.  The word EXCHANGE is positive in looking at reconciliation.  We go from being the enemy of God to being a part of the family of God in Christ. Man is not reconciled because his relationship has changed, but because God has changed him through Christ so that he can be reconciled.  It is not what you do for God, but what God does for you.   In the bible (KJV), Ephesians 2:4-6, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”  Christ reconciled us, restored us and fulfilled His responsibility in the work of redemption.  Now that we are FREED from the LAW, we should submit to the new life in Christ.   We have joined Him in His death and we will rise with Him in the power of His resurrection glory.  If you have fallen away, it’s time for you to be restored.   If you are out of the fold, it’s time for you to come to Christ and be saved.   If you are saved and not witnessing, it’s time to be a witness.  No cross! No crown!  Restoration is for the repentant soul.  King David sought restoration very carefully when he said in the 51st number of Psalm, “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.  Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.”  David confessed his sin and he has enough faith to believe that God loved him enough to restore him.  Then he realizes the power of God by saying,  “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”  When you acknowledge God for who He is, you are ready for reconciliation.  Only God can restore you and make you whole…
