The Daily Grace - God Repairs Us


Early in the human story, sin entered the world (Gen. 3). Theologians refer to the event as "the fall". The inevitable result is brokenness. Life is painful because we keep getting hurt and hurting others with our sharp, jagged edges.

But, God doesn't want us to stay broken. And, His repair work turns our brokenness into beauty. Like a carpenter or any skilled workers, God repairs us. But, He uses something more precious than gold - the blood of His Son.

Instead of having veins of gold that holds the broken fragments together, we are united by the veins of Christ. "We have been united together in the likeness of His death" (Rom. 6:5). Nothing is more beautiful than that. The price of our freedom from sin was paid by Jesus' blood. We have already won the victory because of this. Praise be to God, forever!
