THREE-FOLD RESTORATION

(from MCWE devotion) A miracle is something that requires divine intervention; it cannot happen by human means. Although we usually associate "miracles" with physical healings, let's consider tonight, the miraculous work of restoration that God does in each of us every time we fall into remorse or regret over something we've done. Look at the example of Peter. We know that after he betrayed Jesus he was a very unhappy man, but we seldom realize that there were three parts to his restoration...and each one was a miracle! First, Jesus forgave Peter with a total forgiveness that could only be of God. Second, after Peter tried to "drop out" of discipleship because of remorse, Jesus restored him to undivided fellowship with his brothers. Third, Jesus restored Peter to service and gave him a new commission! How did He heal and restore Peter? By asking Peter to reaffirm his love for Him, Jesus said, "'Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?' 'Yes, Lord,' he said, 'you know that I love you.' Jesus said, 'Feed my lambs.' Again Jesus said, 'Simon son of John, do you truly love me?' He answered, 'Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.' Jesus said, 'Take care of my sheep'" (John 21:15-16, NIV). Are you in a slump of regret ? Have you done something that has made you deeply remorseful? If so, then know that Jesus is offering you the miracle of His three-fold restoration of forgiveness, restoration to fellowship, and a fresh commission for service...
