2 Corinthians 13: 11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.

            At some point in the life of any family there is usually a “discovery” of photos from the past. They are frequently faded, torn, and otherwise marred in some way. An industry has grown up around the idea of restoration of these old photos an example of which you see above. When Paul wrote to the Corinthians to “Strive for full restoration” I wonder if he didn’t mean the experience of what Wesley called entire sanctification. Certainly, the Corinthian Church had “a form of godliness” (2 Timothy 3:5) but they certainly were not living in any kind of spiritual power, so what would it have taken, and for that matter what does it take today to rise to full restoration which Paul speaks of?

            When you are at last overcome by the desire (even to the point of desperation) for the fullness of God to direct your life you will pray, you will fall on your knees, and you will offer to Him all that you are. He will respond to you by filling you with His Holy Spirit and will ever after guide your steps.
