The McKamey’s sing a song called “Broken Things” that we have loved and sang for years. It really hit home when we first heard them sing that song back in the 80’s.
I think we’ve all been there – feeling broken and useless, hopeless and done in. But, my friends, God is waiting right there to step in, pick up those broken pieces your life has become, and put you back together again. Yes, amen!
God’s Spirit is Still Alive
God is in the restoration business, people. He still saves, delivers, and heals! He still makes broken things whole again. Your life is NOT hopeless. Your future is bright and full of God’s salvation and blessings.
It is so sad to look around and see that God’s churches have become “museums” – places where the “holy” and “upright” go to sit on the pew, sing a few songs, listen to a message that is prepared on the Internet and printed off of the computer for the minister, and that is it.
What about the broken souls? What about the hurting? What about the neighbor whose home is wrecked and splitting up? What about the person who is on the verge of suicide because there’s nowhere left to turn and they have no hope?
It is time that God’s people wake up, rise up, and begin working together for HIS kingdom – and not their own.
Can I get an amen?!
Aren’t you tired of sitting in ho-hum church services that have become like funeral parlors? Don’t you want to see altars filled with repentance and healing, tongue talking and restoration, renewing and hope?
This is all possible – but first, we must get up and do something to change what the church has become. The church is in a rut. Can you see that?
Jesus Christ died so that we might have life and have it more abundantly – not so that we could go sit on a pew, snuffing out His light.
So many hurting people are being forgotten. Take a moment to think about all of those in nursing homes, jails, prisons, orphanages, mental hospitals and more. Just because someone is in one of these places – places that so many choose to block out of our minds – doesn’t mean we have to go on about our business, pretending they aren’t there.
Ever heard that old phrase “out of sight, out of mind”?
This Can All Change!
I challenge you to rise up, wake up, open your heart, and dig deep in to your soul. Pray as you never have before. Fast like God’s word advises. Go visit that family member or friend in the nursing home or jail. Or take part in the nursing home or jail ministry.
Get up off that pew. Shine your light. Share Jesus. Find that zeal you used to have when you first got saved and you wanted everyone in the whole world to experience the peace and joy of salvation.
Go out into the world, sharing the gospel message of hope. Help those hurting, broken lives find the wholeness that you know God is capable of providing.
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26 KJV)
I leave you with this message:
Jesus, my hope is in YOU.
