Church Restoration – The Grace of Restoring Those Who Fall

Church Restoration – The Grace of Restoring Those Who Fall

Why is Church Restoration an all but forgotten grace in the contemporary church in America? It is a biblical command by Christ Himself (Matthew 18:15-20) and the Apostle Paul (Galatians 6:1-3, Romans 16:17, 1 Cor 5:5, 2 Thess 3:13-15, Titus 3:9-11). I hope this article will ignite your heart to lovingly restore those who are fallen into sin (James 5:20).

Practical Godliness (Ephesians 4:25-32)

Pastor Steve concludes the fourth chapter of Ephesians in expositing Ephesians 4:25-32 on the theme of “Practical Godliness.” This is the Apostle Paul’s admonition to not grieve the Holy Spirit as the people of God but to live in forgiveness with each other through practical evidences of a changed life.

You Alone are Holy, Rev 15:1-4

You Alone are Holy, Rev 15:1-4

This is the highest of all the attributes of our God – holiness!

Holiness is the very excellency of the Divine nature: the great God is “glorious in holiness” (Ex. 15:11). He only is independently, infinitely, immutably holy. In Scripture He is frequently styled “The Holy One”: He is so because the sum of all moral excellency is found in Him. He is absolute Purity, unsullied even by the shadow of sin. His holiness is the very antithesis of all moral blemish or defilement. Of old, God appointed singers in Israel “that they should praise for the beauty of holiness” (2 Chron. 20:21). “Power is God’s hand or arm, omniscience His eye, mercy His bowels, eternity His duration, but holiness is His beauty” (Stephen Charnock).
