Restoring Wanderers

Passage: James 5:19-20
Service Type:

I had lost sight of God’s mission for the church: restoration. All through the scriptures we see a narrative of release for the captives, sight for the blind, freedom for the oppressed, the word of God to be written on our hearts, the ability to walk with God in relationship, that God’s mercy outweighs judgment, to not only take communion, but to live in communion. We have the greatest gift of freedom and sometimes try to turn it into a law to judge others by, is there no wonder that a frustrated James would be prompted by a frustrated Holy Spirit to remind us of our true calling? We have an awesome gift that we can use to help each other find restoration and healing and we try to ration it to those who we think deserve it.
