Not everyone believes that.
For those of us who do, we’ve seen the effects of our own sin darken our souls and wreck relationships. We have endured evil thrust upon us by circumstances beyond our control. We are concerned about what we see happening in culture, and for that matter the future of our country and world. We have come to the point where we have lost hope in the voices around us (or within us) that say, “You’re fine.”
The reality is that God’s words “start over” aren’t for those who define their lives by the words “I’m fine.” Jesus Christ did not come to us in human flesh, die on a cross and then rise from the dead for those who feel they’re fine on their own with how things are and where things are headed.
Starting over is also a much better two-word alternative to “I’m stuck”. Sometimes it’s not about fighting harder in the same direction. It’s about being willing to go back to the beginning. The bible says,
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” [2 Corinthians 5:17]
YOU ARE INVITED TO START OVER WITH GOD AND WITH OTHERS. On Sunday, March 20th and 27th we all start over. Come join us for the launch of a new community called “the church” and hear God’s two most important words to you.
