Let Jesus Be Perfected in You
"Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not from us." 2 Corinthians 4:7
Don't be afraid to be broken by the LORD. In fact, pray for it! All the years we've spent trying to hold ourselves together, our utter brokenness because of sin...the futile efforts and means we've used to try to fix ourselves in a pursuit to be pleasing to God, appealing to others and tolerable to ourselves is nothing more than vain efforts.
May we reject the deceptive idea of "fixed broken" and invite the Holy Spirit to break us of our pride, which says "I've got it."
No...we really don't.
The reason He is such a trustworthy Lord is because He is our Savior. We can trust Him to break us perfectly because He made us and He knows how to make us perfectly new.
