Are you attempting to restore yourself? Have your efforts left you dissatisfied and unrestored?
Paul wrote about the futility of self-resoration and the hope discovered in the only true Restorer: “At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:3-7).
Jesus Christ lived, died, was buried, resurrected, ascended into heaven, and provided His Spirit to live through those who fully surrender their hearts and lives to Him. God never intended for us to restore ourselves by making hardened, cracked cisterns. Rather, He designed all of life as an opportunity to release the Spirit of Christ in us as we drink from the Spring of Living Water. Flow has always been the design of the Designer.
Today, surrender your self-restoration attempts to the One who can wash you clean, make you new, and give you hope.
