The God Kind of Restoration.
The angels announced, " Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" (Luke 2:14) Here's what they were saying: The sin problem is fixed! Peace between God and man is restored. Jesus, the light, fixed the vertical separation that existed between God and man! What a wonderful announcement.
The Lord said to me, because our vertical relationship with God is restored, it empowers us to restore all of our horizontal relationships. This Christmas season, think about which relationships in your life need restoring. When you compare how much we have been restored with God, is it really worth holding on to any hurt or disappointment we may have with someone? What better gift can we give than the gift of forgiveness. Let's make every effort to fix our horizontal relationships this Christmas season.
As we wrap up Christmas, let's forever remember that the baby born in the manger was the light. That light is God with us, God for us and God in us! Let's push the limits and take this light to the world like never before.
Join me this Sunday, as we kick off our new series...CTWG...Consistent time with God. What better way to start off the new year! We'll have free Dunkin donuts and coffee. See you then.
