Restored! Our Story
SHIPPING MAY 2018
There’s something very appealing about the word restoration. Think of the popularity of TV shows that depict amazing renovation projects of houses that look like they are about to fall down and turn out to be wonderful dwelling places under the careful work of people who know what they are doing. If you’ve never read the letter to the Ephesians in the New Testament, the next six weeks will hopefully convince you it is a book worth knowing well. Because in that letter, the Apostle Paul tells us all about the kind of restoration God is doing in our lives.
Just like an old, worn-out house, we cannot restore ourselves. But who better than the craftsman who first designed and created us to breathe new life into our lifeless structure? And that’s just what God is about, as we will see. He takes what is dead, broken, lost, abandoned and restores it as only He can. He knows what He is doing! Ephesians 2:20 says, “We are His house.” Then, a few verses later it says we are “being made part of this dwelling where God lives by His Spirit” (v.22). The kind of spiritual restoration we are thinking of these weeks is real and life-long. There are definite places and moments when aspects of life are restored. Those remind us that God is at work on the overall project and the big reveal of that ultimate restoration will happen on His timetable. We’re living the story of God’s restoring work.
We hope that you will consider offering this six week series on the power of God to bring restoration at your church! Below are links to individual resources, group kits and a complete church launch package which includes sermons, graphics and enough materials to launch a few groups.
