Humpty Dumpty

Gleaning from Pastor Carl’s Sermon on Sunday, he stated that the innocent egg took a terrible tumble, and no one could repair, and put him back together again.

This childhood poem began years ago as a riddle; "What is it when broken can never be repaired, even by the King and all his wise men?  The answer was: the egg.”

God’s creation took a tragic fall when Adam and Eve sinned. Their first child was a murderer and their second child was the victim.

Jealousy, envy, evil of every description has entered our world and the creation has never been the same.

Broken promises, broken hearts, broken dreams, broken sinners, shattered into many pieces, and no man can put them together again.

We are carriers of the original sin, we are a chip off the old block, our DNA is from Adam. We are all as it were, broken eggs.

We can’t glue, repair or fix ourselves no matter how hard we try. The answer lies in Christ Jesus.

Adam brought death into this world and Jesus Christ brings life for all who accept Him.

We can never earn, merit or deserve his perfect sacrifice. God is not impressed by our good report card even if it full of A+ marks.

The bad news is we are a broken people, but the good news is Jesus heals the broken hearts. His grace is greater than all our sin. Much More!

He restores my soul, and renews me. In Him I am a New Creation. He has smashed to smithereens, anything that would attempt to separate us from His love.

Where sin did abound, Grace did Much More abound. The Love of God fills our hearts and minds, with the joy of His Salvation, and we are restored to fellowship with Him.

How much more was his sacrifice? His Love, Mercy, His Grace is higher than the heavens, and his salvation was so freely given.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT) This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
