Forget the Band-Aid


God is not interested in placing band-aids on your broken life; He desires to give you a brand new one.

Jeremiah 3:24

"From childhood we have watched as everything our ancestors worked for--their flocks and herds, their sons and daughters-- was squandered on a delusion." NLT

Sin is not your friend. Yes, it may feel good to do it. There may be a "high" associated with the activity, but don't let that make you think that it is on your side. In the book of Jeremiah, God is speaking to his people about their evil activity. In the midst of His convicting words, God points them to a time that is yet to come where they will turn back to God. When they turn back to Him, they will see the truth about their sinfulness and how much it costs. This is one of the things that occur when we repent. We see our sin, the cost of it and the reality that we are to blame.

But God does not leave us there.

Our God is a God of hope and second chances. He desires to take our sin-stained lives and turn them into glorious gems. God is not interested in simply placing a band-aid on our faulty flesh; He desires to give us a brand new life. This all starts when we turn from the empty sin we have been chasing after and turn to the mighty God who desires to save us. Have you turned to Him? He is waiting with open arms.

Life Lesson: God is not interested in placing band-aids on your broken life; He desires to give you a brand new one.

Dear Jesus,
I believe You died for me so that I could be forgiven. I believe You were raised from the dead so that I could have new life. I know I have done wrong things, and I'm sorry. Please forgive me and give me the power to follow You all the days of my life. Amen.
