The Path to Restoration

When I have to talk to someone who has been caught in sin and the person seems to be repentant and wants restoration there are always four key things I cover with them:

1. How are we going to help you to reconnect with God and stay connected?

2. How can we help you get to the root of the problem? You need to understand what drove you to this behavior. Why wasn’t God enough for you? Why were you able to ignore God throughout this? Who could help you through that process?

3. How can we establish some new boundaries in your life that would put some distance between you and temptation?

4. Who can provide some real accountability for you, in general and particularly for this sin?
