Restoring Others

Mar 31, 2024    Daniel Englehart

Happy Easter! This morning we conclude our study through the book of James as we consider James 5:19-20. James calls for followers of Jesus to seek after those who wander and stray from the truth. He encourages us that we will save their soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.

As a community of faith we pray that we don't respond in condemnation or callousness to others. We pray that we don't avoid those who wander or attack them. As we respond to and experience the grace of God, we desire to move towards those who are wandering in a gentle manner and heart of compassion. As we remember and celebrate Jesus' resurrection on Easter, we find in Jesus the manner, model, and means of restoration. May God give us grace as we seek to become more like Jesus and seek the restoration of others.
