“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” ( 2 Cor 5:17).
It’s normal to desire that any road that has faults to be restored to its old permanent order. If the faults are left to widen the road may end up as impassable and accident prone. A passable road should be restored for safe passage of all who use it!
Created by the Almighty God mankind lives in a state of rebellion without Him. But because God is loving and good He desires to bring everyone to come to a point repentance and find Him through His son Jesus Christ. “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me” ( Rev 3:20). Once one accepts Christ he is restored to the love of God.
Today, anyone could find himself in that state of rebellion away from God. Yet God desires you are restored to Him. For, “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” ( 2 Peter 3:9).
Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, while man lives in a state of rebellion you desire to restore him to your gracious love, and today I pray to accept you as my Lord and Saviour and be restored to your awesome love, this I pray in Jesus’s name.
