“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
On behalf of all of us in the Restoration community, I want to say how excited I am that you’ve decided to follow the way and teachings of Jesus! I can tell you from my experience, this is the absolute best choice you could possibly make. Remember that no one masters the way of Jesus overnight. It’s an upside down, radical lifestyle that can make the comfortable become uncomfortable and the unconventional seem conventional. It’s awesome! Don’t be too hard on yourself, this will not be the last time you’ll need grace! But, keep striving to live a life that authentically reflects Jesus to the world around you. You’ll have bumps in the road and there will still be difficult days. However, don’t let it deter you from what Jesus is doing in and through you! As you explore the way of Jesus, please know that all of us at Restoration are pulling for you! We’ve got your back and we are here for you as you take this journey. I’m so proud of you and we can’t wait to see where this journey with Jesus will lead you!
