Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

 “I restored that which I took not away” (Psa 69:4).

The true Christian spirit is restoring that which one did not take away. Sounds strange, doesn’t it? What is this? The devil took away our health, peace, joy, love, etc. from us – which Jesus restored to us. This is the real ministry entrusted to us also.

 If someone hates you, it is because the devil has taken love away from him. He certainly must be miserable. What should you do then? If you are a true child of God, you will restore to him the love he lost, by loving him in a very special way. If you cannot love him, it means the devil has taken away from you the greatest and most important divine quality, love. “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love)” (I Cor 13:13).

 The devil has taken away love from millions of souls; they are starved of true love. Let us restore to them what the devil has taken away and what the world cannot offer – divine love, forgiving love. The devil is also actively involved in the business of taking peace away from people, families and homes. Shall we then go about restoring peace wherever we go? Jesus “made” peace by His death on the cross, and He wants us too to be peace “makers” by making a sacrifice (of our self-interest, self-concern, etc.).

 How many of us can say along with Jesus, “I restored that which I took not away”?
