Life Through Brokenness
Psalm 51:17 (NIV) - The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
Life Through Brokenness The Condition of Our World The Condition of Our Heart Surrender To Our Savior
The Condition of Our World John 3:19 (NIV) 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
The Condition of Our World We prefer evil We prefer our own way We prefer Jesus as our “life insurance” instead of surrendering our lives to Him to enjoy the fullness life has to offer.
The Condition of Our Heart Deuteronomy 8:2 (NIV) Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.
The Condition of Our Heart We are prideful. We are worldly. We are guarded. We are faithless. We are broken. Humble Spiritual Genuine Faithful Whole
Life Through Brokenness God is more interested in your heart than your circumstances.
Surrender to the Savior James 1:12 (NIV) - Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
Surrender to Our Savior Stop pretending. Acknowledge our weakness. Accept our inability. Find healing in our vulnerability
Surrender to Our Savior John 10:10 (NIV) - The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Life Through Brokenness Brokenness opens the door for Christ to restore us to wholeness.
