For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. – Luke 19:10 (NKJV)
WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO?
1. WE NEED TO REBUILD.
Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to dwell in. – Isaiah 58:12 (NKJV)
A RESTORATION MOVEMENT NEEDS TO BE LED BY THOSE RESTORED.
Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens, loaded themselves so that WITH ONE HAND THEY WORKED AT CONSTRUCTION and WITH THE OTHER HAND HELD A WEAPON. – Nehemiah 4:17 (NKJV)
2. WE NEED TO REFOCUS.
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of DARKNESS into His marvelous LIGHT. – 1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV)
25 Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea they were troubled saying “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear. (BREAK) 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid. 28 AND PETER ANSWERED HIM and said “Lord if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” – Matthew 14:25-28 (NKJV)
34 Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” 35 Peter said to Him, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” - Matthew 26:34-35 (NKJV)
51 But one of the men with Jesus pulled out his sword and struck the high priest’s slave, slashing off his ear. 52 “Put away your sword,” Jesus told him. “Those who use the sword will die by the sword.” - Matthew 26:51-52 (NLT)
But Peter FOLLOWED HIM AT A DISTANCE to the high priest’s courtyard. And he went in and sat with the servants. – Matthew 26:58 (NKJV)
And Peter remembered the word of Jesus who had said to him, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” So he went out and wept BITTERLY. - Matthew 26:75 (NKJV)
3. WE NEED TO RESTORE.
This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow Me.” John 21:19 (NKJV) John 21:1-18 (NKJV)
