God is the ultimate restoration. What does he restore ?
Joy! God empowered people and freedom from the bondage of our past and gives us a freedom in the future. Rom 6:23
"For the wages of sin is death but the gift of life is eternal life".
Wonder from others! Due to the changes in our life can led others to Christ because of the change of our behaviour that has been brought about as a result of our new freedom. Acts 3:9-10
"And all the people saw him walking and praising God, and recognized him as the one who sat at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, asking for alms. And they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him."
God's blessing encourages Prayer for more. Once a person realizes that salvation is by faith in Jesus that we are saved. As a person rejoices in this fact results in the realization that their is nothing that they can do to save themselves except through the gift of salvation. Eph 2:8-9
"For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast."
God loves to restore Joy. "Jesus explained: I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it many seeds." John 12:24
This Easter let's celebrate this gift of Life with Joy.
