Restoring One Another
The church is supposed to be God’s hospital for folks who are spiritually ill.
God’s spiritual repair center is His family as they do the job of helping hurting people get well.
Churches are full of people, and people are full of pain.
If you find people who are stuck, they ought to be able to come to the church and find spiritual physicians who are equipped and desirous to help mend them.
Churches are full of prisoners of war, people who are suffering in a prison they can’t get out of.
If the spiritual is the cause, the spiritual must be the cure.
A spiritual person who consistently operates with God’s spirit in mind.
A spiritual person is never satisfied with merely discussing the symptoms.
A spiritual person has to have the right spirit. It ought to be clear even if it hurts, it’s designed to help.
When we restore one another, it’s to help because it’s a family issue, the church of Jesus Christ helping people become whole again, strong again, victorious again.
You bear the burden, but you don’t take the load.
