The High Purpose of Brokenness

Isaiah 61:1 says that Jesus came to heal broken hearts.  He uses broken vessels to display His power and His light.  We miss His higher purpose when we try to cover our brokenness.

2 Corinthians 4:7 says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.”

It isn’t a sin to be broken.  It’s a sin when we hide our brokenness, and try to appear to be something we are not.  Our coverup resists God’s higher purpose.  Let His light shine through your brokenness and He will get the glory.
