The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; Isaiah 61:1 NIV
Who are the brokenhearted?
Who makes it through life unscathed?
Who escapes disappointment of broken promises?
Who has not participated in their own misery?
Who in life are untouched by lies of trusted relationships?
Who endures continual judgment for past failures?
Who bears the scars of abuse either physical or emotional?
Who desires to be free of pressures to be something you can never obtain?
Who has felt the sting of rejection?
We want grace for our brokenness
We long for peace for our hurt
We receive God’s message of acceptance and love toward us
We are willing to let Him bind up our broken heart
Will you extend grace to those you think are more broken than you?
Murderer, adulterer, child abuser, sexual deviant, the addict of drugs and pornography, repeat offenders
The proud, selfish, liar, thief, gossip, judgmental, deceiver, lustful, hypocrit and the arrogant
How is your brokenness not as foul as another’s?
When does grace to heal find a stopping point?
WE are the broken
Jesus seeks and draws near to those who are brokenhearted
They are ALL of US
