“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” I Peter 5:10
Peter experienced firsthand the ineffectiveness of trying to face danger and temptation in his own strength and the resulting, inevitable failure. In facing his brokenness he learned both the pain and the joy of being restored by a God who never gives up on us.
We too must learn that those who have suffered failure are to be restored… not ignored, not excused, not destroyed.
While Peter would have preferred a less painful restoration process, he came to embrace the truth that God uses brokenness to perfect, establish, strengthen, and restore us. Peter became a passionate advocate for the power of restoration in his own life and in the body of Christ.
