The gospel tells us we do not have to have it all together. And this, friend, is very good news. In a world driven by performance, perfection, power, and prestige, the gospel smacks down those idols and welcomes all who are burdened, burned out, broken, and brittle to come find rest. Our God says to put down your shovel, cease your striving, and receive a gift you could never earn even if you tried. God saves us. Here are some questions to ponder:
- How would you summarize your role in the gospel?
- Do you see the world as broken and separated from God?
- Place yourself in that hole from Day 4. How does this make you feel?
- How do you feel about God right now? How do you think God feels about you?
God, forgive me for trying to hang on to control and prove something to you.I admit that I cannot save myself. I need you. Thank you for rescuing me.
