Brokeness is Non-Negotiable
2 Corinthians 4:7-10 New International Version (NIV)
7 But we have this treasure in jars of clayto show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed,but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
If self-reliance is the factor to our success, God’s glory would be diminished, having to share precious space with our lesser glory. As what Murray Brett writes, ” The price of God’s glory shining in our lives is brokenness.
A man who is broken in Spirit cannot be stopped. What else can stop him, He is already broken before Christ.
