Sermons about Restored
Today Ronnie talks about King David's past. A man after God's own heart, who has a "checkered" past, including adultery and murder. Yet he still repents, accepts and steps into God's grace, knowing that only God can save him, by being cleansed, restored and used... by God.
On two very busy days John the Baptist saw Jesus in crowd, and cried out 'Behold! Look the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!' While the translation we have in the NKJV is correct, I think it fails to bring out the strongly enough intensity as, 'Look! Look the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!' it would bring out the intensity of John's directive to the crowd to seek to understand the focus John the Baptist places on Christ.
A look at the prodical son reconciled to the father; a new creation in Christ
In our fallen world, the most important aspect of God as Creator is God as re-creator. Our hope is to be remade by God through Jesus Christ.
Jesus overcame our moral inability to please God by living a life of perfect obedience to the Father, dying a sacrificial death on our behalf, and by doing so winning new, regenerate hearts for those who would trust in him. In Ephesians 4:17-24, the Apostle Paul describes how, with these regenerate hearts, we can put off our old sinful orientations by renewing our minds, put on our new selves, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness, and live lives with restored walks.
Are you tired, burdened, anxious, angry, or depressed? If you need to be restored, then this message is for you. It is the story about the steadfast love of God which alone is able to restore his people and give them hope in the midst of this difficult and trying world.
Because Christ has risen we can change and be changed. We have hope each day and for eternity. The gospels are trustworthy. We are forgiven and restored. We are safe in Christ for eternity. We have access to the same power that raised Jesus from the dead.
