Broken, But Still Works
“Jesus replied to them, ‘The healthy don’t need a doctor, but the sick do. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.’” - Luke 5:31-32
It seemed like the 2014 Tour de France was filled with more drama than ever before. On day one, the top sprinter crashed and was out of the Tour. A few days later, the defending champion dropped out of the Tour after crashing three times in two days. A couple days after that, the new favorite to win crashed and dropped out. These three riders were broken and banged up and would have been no good to their teammates whose main purpose in the Tour had been to guide these men to victory.
How blessed we are as Christians that no matter how broken we are, we’re never too beat up to drop out of God’s race. He will never cast us aside because we are hurt, damaged or sin-stained. He sent His Son, Jesus, to Earth to save the broken, the discarded and the sinners. Even when we are at our lowest, He still wants us.
Christ said He came to save and heal the broken and hurting. And even in that condition, He wants us to serve His Team. There’s always something we can do. We’re never too broken for Christ to use for His glory.
The Team is always looking for more riders. Will you join in?
Have you ever felt unworthy of being used by God? Why or why not?
In what areas would you like to serve in ministry but feel unworthy or too damaged?
How can your weakness be used by God for His glory?
