INTRODUCTION

One of the biblical evidences of genuine repentance is restitution. It is only a genuinely converted believer that can take steps to make restitution of wrongs which were made at the time of ignorance. It is the desire of God for us to correct past wrongs which are correctable. In this lesson we shall consider some of them.

 

 

 

OUTLINE
1. WHY MAKE RESTITUTION?
2. EXAMPLES OF RESTITUTION IN THE BIBLE
3. SOME SPECIFIC RESTITUTION TO MAKE

 

 

 

WHY MAKE RESTITUTION?
We make restitution for three major reasons:
a) God commands it – Lev. 6:1-5; Ex. 22:10-13.

 
b) To have a clear conscience towards God and towards man – 1 Sam. 12:1-5; Acts 24:16.

 
c) It is the evidence of our conversion which shows our readiness to obey the scriptures – Lk. 19:8-9; Ezek. 33:14-16.

 

 

 

 

EXAMPLES OF RESTITUTION IN THE BIBLE
There are also examples of people who made restitution in the Bible.

These include Abimelech, Joseph’s brothers, Old testament kings and prophets, Zacchaeus, during the time of our Lord Jesus and the apostles – Gen. 20:6-14; Gen. 50:15-19; 1 Kgs. 20:34; Neh. 5:11-12; Lk. 19:8-9; Acts 23:1-5; Philm 10:17-19.

 

 

 

 

SOME SPECIFIC RESTITUTIONS TO MAKE
a. We should return things that we have stolen, picked or converted to our own use but which belong to another person or to our place of work. These include our tithes and first fruits, the non-payment of which is robbery and which we must restore – Lev. 6:2-5; Lk. 19:8; Mal. 3:8; Lev. 5:14-16.

 

 
b. We should replace things we have destroyed which belong to another person- Ex. 22:5-6; Ex. 21:18-19.

 

 
c. We should also reconcile with people we quarrelled with in the past – Matt. 5:23-25; Mt. 18:15-17.

 
d. We should make restitution of all lies and things wrongly said about someone and which has affected the person or is presently causing trouble – 2 Sam. 16:5-8; 2 Sam. 19:18-20; Acts 23:1-5.

 

 
e. Marriages contracted contrary to biblical standards should also be visited. Lawful parental demands should be granted while people who have married another person’s spouse must prayerfully take steps towards restitution – Lk. 3:8; Gen. 20:14; Rom. 2:13-16.

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
Do you have any restitution to make? Pray to God for help and take the right steps. The Holy Spirit will help you.
