The Mended Life
In the Word
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Of the Word
We know Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall and had a great fall, but who was this egg?
It is believed that Humpty Dumpty was a huge cannon from the English Civil War.
This great weapon was struck by a cannon ball, knocked off the tower wall, and blasted into so many pieces that all the king’s horses and all the king’s men could not put it back together again.
Ever felt that way? Strong and secure one minute when suddenly the world just falls apart. We just can’t get it back together. Others are either unwilling or unable to help, and we wonder if there is hope. Good news! We are not like Humpty Dumpty!
There is hope for us. No matter how broken and splintered life is, we can be put back together by the King of Kings Himself. His love and forgiveness heal us from the most devastating fall of all, the fall into sin. Though we are fragile, God can make us new again.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17)!
Walking with my Lord
Father, I am so fragile and sometimes broken, but You alone are my strength and salvation. Restore me, Lord, and make me Your new creation. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
