Strive for full restoration. 2 Corinthians 13:11
In the story, the “A Father’s Love,” the father receives his lost son back into the family and fully restores him. “Bring the best robe…put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feed” (Luke 15:22). The father also took shame from his fellow Jews for running to meet him(Luke 15:20). Men did not run in that culture and it was humiliating to show his bare legs.
God has restored us to Himself by the work of Jesus. Our eternal Father has taken on our shame through the cross Christ. Jesus was made a perfect sin-offering, so we could be fully restored as fallen, human beings. “Nothing is able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39).
Do you have any relationships that need restored?
