North Augusta, South Carolina
From the Pastor’s Desk .....
As we come together in this advent season, we are compassed about with a direction from almighty God through the blood of Jesus Christ to acknowledge and accept A Call to Restoration. A Call to Restoration is much needed in our society as we pause to give recognition to the death and resurrection of our Lord and savior Jesus, the Christ.
To fully understand this call to restoration, we must first know and accept the fact that the word restoration in this biblical sense means to restore; which further means to return all things to their previous and pure state.
The Ancient Hebrew legal definition of restoration was, to not only, to restore or repay what was lost but to make it better than before. Job, for instance, was restored or repaid more than he had lost during his trials and sufferings.
In the text as recorded in Acts 3:19-21, as it relates to a call to restoration, we notice that Peter takes the time to break things down as he preaches to the Israelites.
In the sense of a sermon, Peter preaches a word to the Jews in Jerusalem entitled “A Call to Restoration”; a call to turn back to the truth they had heard and been taught by the prophets relative to Jesus Christ.
