Beauty and Brokenness

Alternative content

The brokenness of creation is readily obvious and universally pervasive, overtaking the physical world, our relationships and, most especially, our spirituality. We aren’t designed for this curse we’ve earned, which leaves us scrambling for a cure. The good news is that, in the middle of our darkest, God’s hope breaks through in two ways. Firstly, He gives everybody “common grace” where he gives us “rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness” as a gracious blessing to us as well as a witness to draw us to the gift-giver and the offer of the second and deeper hope: God’s “Saving Grace.” Common Grace is the temporary appetizer and witness for the fully satisfying permanent Saving Grace where the Father put our curse on Jesus in order to utterly reverse the brokenness and re-create us to himself.
