Brokenness


By grace you have been saved, through faith.

Ephesians 2:8


What does it mean to be a “broken” person? Someone defined it this way: A growing awareness that no matter how hard we try, our ability to make life work gets worse instead of better. It’s a recognition of our need for God and His intervention in our lives.


The apostle Paul talked about our brokenness in terms of being “dead in (our) transgressions and sins” (Eph 2:1). The answer to our need to be forgiven and changed comes in verses 4 and 5: “Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive . . . . (It) is by grace that we have been saved.”


God is willing to heal our brokenness with His grace when we admit, “I’m broken.”

Bible Reading

Prayer

My Lord and God, thank You for being rich in mercy toward me! May I boast in You and Your gift of salvation through grace by faith. In Christ's name. Amen.
