RESTORING OUR RELATIONSHIP

ab7Look where Jesus has brought us from and how He has placed up in this world. With one, only hope is that we will trust Him and serve Him. Good morning my beloved in the Lord and to my ministers and daily readers greetings. Let us look at ourselves for a moment.

If human nature is so corrupt, then how can any of us restore our relationship with God? The truth is, on our own we can’t (Ephesians 2:8-9). While God has revealed Himself to us in a general sense in nature and moral conscience (Psalm 19:1; Romans 1:20; 2:14-15), this is not enough to restore our relationship. That’s why God provided the Bible for us – His special revelation – and did something else amazing: “The Word [Christ] became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood” (John 1:14, The Message). This is the story of God the Son – Jesus Christ – being born as a human, fully God yet fully man, in order to grow up and suffer and die for us on a cross, but miraculously come to life again, forming one of the cornerstones of Christian belief – the Resurrection.

It is only through God’s grace that any of us can restore our relationship with our Creator. There is always some ups and downs in relationships. Some we can seek out and others are just a bunch of mess. We can testify of this individually. we all pass through this city of vanity and while some of us escape the others and left in the quandary hoping to get out. They are others who love the mess that they are not even making an effort to get out. However, God in all His wisdom has planned this whole thing out for us. Yes, He did and left us a blueprint to follow. Only believe and thou shall be saved. We have to stay in our lane and follow the leader while obeying instructions.

But Christ’s death and resurrection do not automatically accomplish a restored relationship between us and God. We must respond personally, sincerely and with a commitment to turn away from our sin (repent), acknowledging that only Christ can save us from our fallen condition. Saints of God this is our opportunity to advance the cause of service to the Lord. My brothers and sisters in Christ I speak to you as a servant and I want you to read the “blueprint” and follow the instructions. This is my message to you this morning. Follow your leader.

The gospel or “good news” is that Christ has died for us, meaning that we can ask for His forgiveness and receive it. There is no magic in this request or exact ritual we must follow. It is simply a matter of turning to God through Christ and, through prayer, confessing that we have fallen short of His standards, expressing our desire to have Christ direct our lives for His glory, not ours. David is a good example how to approach the Throne of God’s grace. You can read it in Psalm 51
