Bible Challenge – 2 Corinthians 7

February 15, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death.” v.10 (NLT)

We have all experienced sadness, but not all of us have experienced brokenness! Brokenness, causes us to see ourselves in a way that exposes who we really are.  Brokenness causes us to look outside ourselves, realizing that we have a need that can not be met my things, others, or ourselves.  In times of brokenness we see who we are in light of who God is.  It reveals our sinfulness and His Holiness.  It causes us to repent from sin and seek forgiveness and moves us into a great knowledge and experience of Gods Love for us.

However, many times we don’t allow ourselves to have a sense of brokenness.  Brokenness goes against everything we have been programmed to believe by our society.  Work hard, don’t cry, you can do anything you put your mind to, and you can live happily ever after.  Out fear of failure, and fear of what others might think, say, or do, and our own pride keeps many of us from expressing and experiencing true brokenness thus causing us to harden our heart toward God.

Therefore here is the question, When the real you is exposed, how do you respond?

Today, lets pray that God would give us a sense of brokenness for the things that break His Heart! This is the only way we will truly change because we rely on His strength, mercy, grace, and forgiveness instead of relying on ourselves.
