Handling Brokenness: Introduction

This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Romans 3:22-24 (NIV)

I have never met a person that wasn’t broken in some way. Some were more obvious than others, and I am sure there is someone out there that thinks of me as one of the “obviously broken” people in their life. Everyone is broken; no exceptions. At least this should give us some common ground to discuss life and love and the world we live in, but too often we figure out ways for our brokenness to divide rather than bring together.

The question becomes a matter of what we do with our brokenness? How do we face it, or do we face it at all? What are some of the ways that we have created to cope with our brokenness instead of seeking healing and wholeness? For the next few posts I will be posting some thoughts on this subject and hope that you will join me in the conversation.

The next post will begin the conversation by looking at the origin of sin and man’s initial response to being caught in sin. I hope that this discussion will be a blessing to all who participate and look forward to what others have to say in the weeks ahead.

  1. Chris, what are you doing? I will continue to ignore my brokenness, and everyone else’s, until I reach a blissful state…. Keep up the good work bro!
