Restoration on the way

Sunday December 11, 2022

Theme: “Restoration on the way"

Text: Luke 3:10-18

10. The crowd questioned him, saying, What shall we do then? 11. He answered them, Let him who has two tunics share with him who has none, and let him who has food do likewise. 12. There also came publicans to be baptized, and they said unto him, Master, what shall we do? 13. He answered them, Do not require anything beyond what you have been commanded. 14. Some soldiers also asked him: And we, what should we do? He answered them: Do not commit extortion or deceit against anyone, and be content with your pay. 15. As the people were waiting, and all wondered within themselves whether John was not the Christ, 16. he said to them all, I baptize you with water; but he comes who is mightier than I, and I am not worthy to loosen the strap of his shoes. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. 17. He has his van in his hand; he will clean his threshing floor, and he will gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn the chaff in an unquenchable fire. 18. This is how John announced the good news to the people, addressing many other exhortations to them.


Remember:


John the Baptist prepared the ground on which the restoration should be installed. He cleared the ground, removed the stumps, irrigated the water, filled in the holes, erected furrows in order to prepare the people for the restoration to come. Knowing that Jesus would come to complete his work, John was not light in his task, he did not skimp with words and means so that Jesus could find hearts ready to receive restoration. It is this same work that has been done by all the servants of God in all the ages of the Church, for millennia. Are we able to experience the ideal restoration? A restored life must no longer indulge in sin and disobedience. Have we received the seeds of restoration? A heart that carries the seeds of restoration shares its tunic and its meal with those who have none. He demands nothing beyond what has been ordained. He does not commit extortion or fraud against anyone, but is content with his salary. He does not impersonate his master. He leaves his heart at the disposal of God. According to our ranks and grades, let us be ready to receive restoration and preserve our gains in Jesus Christ. Excellent Sunday. Amen
