In my church lesson today, I actually attended a church service today; we learned about sharing each other’s burdens, consulting one another to be held accountable and to feel supported by one another, and to encourage one another, like he said – he needs to receive prayer by people, to receive text messages during the day to share a verse where someone thought of him, to pray over his life as well as to pray over others lives.
Brothers, if someone is caught in a trespass, you who are spiritual should restore him with a spirit of gentleness. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the Law of Christ. – Galatians 6:1-2
This appealed to me today and I thought it was the perfect message that fell in line over what God has been telling me; I can create a space where we build community, in the Spirit of Jesus Christ – where new believers can find Christ and stay encouraged.
To disciple them, mentor them, and keep them going in their journey with Christ – so he can speak to them and they learn who He is.
In these last days it is incredibly disturbing how many people are lost to Christ; that we are not a strong voice for the Lord. We seem to forget he is in our everyday lives, wanting so much to appeal to people; that they know he is there for them and loves them, wanting their souls to be saved.
We can stay together and be the ambassadors, if you will, for Christ – teaching the loving words of Christ, to embody him, and encourage young believers to believe in Christ, to trust him beyond anything they can ever think of – or anyone – not even Joel Osteen can save them, nor will he tell the truth. He is a false christ if I ever saw one – too bad he is misleading so many down the wrong road; the broad highway of death where dead souls go.
God’s will is to restore as many people as he can, as were given to him to save – and we need to teach the Word – and show them the way. To keep going, to exort them and teach them the love of the Lord who watches over their lives to strengthen them and build faith in them. This is freely given, the life-saving Words where Jesus can talk to them in their hearts and minds so that they rely upon His Word to guide them, to believe him.
I wish for you today, I pray for you, that you stay on your path with Christ Jesus, the one and only Lord who has the way to life; eternal life with Him.
Read your bibles; talk to Him, ask him for guidance in your lives today.

The ministry of restoration is a necessary ministry but one that is often neglected. I appreciate you sharing this. May it be a reminder to us all to attempt to restore rather than kick people to the curb.
