Key Verse:

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8


By Pastor Jon Haakana

Did you know that there are 401 compound words in the English language that have the prefix re…? The meaning of the prefix is 1) restoration to a previous condition, or 2) repetition of a previous action. It brings to mind words like reactivate, recharge, and redo.

In our spiritual lives it is also important to take a look at the condition of our hearts and faith to see if anything needs to be redeemed or restored. Sin has a way of changing the condition of our hearts and lives, turning them away from God and to self. Sometimes our hearts need to be reset, and our minds renewed. Check out the following verses in Scripture:

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” Romans 12:2

“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature, rather, serve one another in love.” Galatians 5:13

“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” 1 Peter 5:10
