Today’s scripture: Jeremiah 15:19a – “If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve me.” So simple a sentence..so powerful a statement. So powerful a God. God’s will is that no one should perish as it says in His word. He wants us to live and live well, live life to the full. He provided the way. He gave His only son Jesus to die on a cross so that we could live. Jesus provided the example for our lives while he walked this earth. What’s our end of the bargain? Receiving God’s love, grace and forgiveness. When we go to Him and pour out ourselves before Him and ask for forgiveness, when we repent of our sins, we are set free. We are reconciled to Him. We are restored. We have complete and total access to Him. He has given us every spiritual blessing. We are not lacking, because we choose to seek His kingdom and His righteousness first above all else. What comes out of all this? Our heart to serve Him..to worship Him. We are so moved by His love for us we can’t help but share it with the world. The more we seek after God the more of what breaks His heart starts to break our hearts. We want to serve Him our church, in the homeless shelters and in our very own homes. God has placed His power, Spirit and love inside of us for strength. It’s not for our status or image..it is for His service. We can serve Him and not grow weary. We can make a difference in the world because our Heavenly Father has so graciously restored us. Give Him praise.
