The Power of Brokenness Book
Brokenness is the
acknowledgment of grace, where self-will is superseded by God’s
will. While righteousness demands payment for evil done, brokenness
recognizes that payment can not be made regardless of our human
effort and rejoices in the forgiveness of sin.
It is only in our
brokenness that we can truly begin our relationship with God.
We all must start from this same place. Nobody comes to the table
with more than anyone else. God made everything, owns everything
and has gifted each of us with the talents that we bring. Nobody
can stand before God in an elevated or diminished position. God
does not care if you have been homeless or are a millionaire;
if you have been a Christian for years or are just seeking the
truth today. This understanding allows us to come at the question
of a relationship with Jesus Christ from a position of brokenness.
We must overcome the denial of the things that are destroying
our lives, our peace and our relationship with God. Without this
honesty and brokenness, our knowledge means nothing.
