Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/25/10

This week’s scripture is from Jeremiah:

“If you repent, I will restore you…”    (Jeremiah 15:19a)

Let us bear the fruit of repentance. The first message that Jesus preached was one of repentance. There is much to try the hearts of the saints these days, and many are suffering various trials, and whereas not all that comes upon us is because of us, let each one search his heart and bring repentance before our Lord, for He is faithful to restore us. Let it start with us: If anyone harbors ill will against another or has held on to hurts or has refused forgiveness of a brother or sister, may the Lord our God lead us into the light of repentance, into the fullness of restoration, where we might then bear fruit for Him.

May the Lord bless us to search our hearts and bring every matter before Him that we might be restored.
