Beauty · Brokenness · Communion · Healing

communion… beauty from brokenness…

Watching people move toward the altar for communion… I know many of their stories… some I can imagine from their look… and I’m reminded of all our brokenness… and how He invites us in our brokenness…

No need to clean up… dress up… or get it together before we come… because all our efforts are futile… He alone makes the way for wholeness… redemption… healing…

He receives us just as we are… takes on all our brokenness Himself… the whole ugly world’s mess… because He loves…

… Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Ephesians 5:2 ESV

And that’s the beauty of the gospel… it’s all Him… all His perfection taking on all our mess… and making it beautiful too…
