What We Can Learn About Service From a Wheelbarrow
Take another look at the wheelbarrow from the last post. More specifically, look at the right handle; its been broken.
That’s true enough, but not enough to keep the wheelbarrow out of service. Its been fixed.
Just as our repairs made this previously broken tool available for service, God can repair, and use, us in spite of our previous brokenness. That’s what 1 John 1:9-2:2 is all about.
Think you’re too badly broken to be useable? Think again. Think how how badly (and repeatedly) Abraham messed up; God still used him. David committed a trifecta of mortal sins, but God forgave and and continued to use him once he repented. And what about Saint Paul; he really had issues, but God fixed them and used him powerfully. If God can use these folks, He can certainly use you.
