A Heart to Heal

Galatians 6:1 says, “you who are spiritual, restore….”  I believe the word is conveying the idea that we should as the body of Christ, seek to restore others to God because we are people who identify with the Spirit of God and see ourselves as His instruments.  Seeing yourself as His instrument will have you focused on people and less preoccupied with things.   Jesus did not come to serve things but the interests of others.  All too often when we are in a position to restore others, we fail to hear them in a way to be of any useful benefit.  In a recent conversation with a friend of mine, each of us were sharing some things that bothered us.  It seemed as though we were each caught up sharing about our individual problems without really listening to the other.  Though unaware of it at the time, we were almost trying to out-best the other’s problems with neither finding a place for healing.  If I had realized at the time that God desires for me to restore my brother, things may have turned out different.  The word says, ‘you who are spiritual restore’.  We all have hurts and things we could share, but are we listening to be an effective instrument of the Master restoring others to His love?  I believe He is saying to spiritual men and women, ‘have a heart to heal to breach’, here you will find a greater place of recovery for youself as you allow your focus to change from things to people and from self concerns to the needs of others.  The Father’s heart is a heart to heal.  The call to restore is uncommonly His, with no thought for self, only a desire to ransom many–bringing them and ourselves to a place of great recovery.
