First lesson in the MelVEE Sabbath School Bible Study Series under the theme called, “The Role of God’s Church in the Community.” Join Melusi Ndhlalambi, Vuyisela Geza, and Sithandile Mpofu as they discuss about how God is “restoring all things” through His Church.
All one has to do is look around, at the world, at the neighborhood, at oneself, to see the point. And the point is something is terribly wrong man are fallen from the glory of God and are in a state of sin. Men are in rebellion and are the trophies of the the great controversy. And yet, the good news is that it’s not permanent. It’s not going to last forever.
Jesus came, died for the sins of the world, and promised to come again. And when He does, nothing of this world will remain. Instead, a new kingdom, His eternal kingdom, will begin. “And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever” (Dan. 2:44, NKJV).
What a restoration!
But we don’t have to wait until the Second Coming for the restoration to begin. Those who are in Christ are a new creation now (2 Cor. 5:17), and we are predestined to be conformed to the likeness of Jesus now (Rom. 8:29). Also, He calls us and empowers us, as His church, so that we can work toward the restoration of others as well.
