Broken- having been fractured or damaged and no longer in one piece or in working order.
So, who are the broken people? Well, the answer to that question is that we are the broken people – all of us. We are broken in that we do not function as the Lord intended us to function. We have a fallen nature and we cannot fix ourselves. The Bible is all about fixing that which is broken in us.
Salvation -preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss.
The Bible offers salvation to all those that admit to being broken. It shows us clearly that we need a Savior to rescue us from our hopeless state. It took the Lord becoming man and dying on a cruel cross to save us from harm, ruin, and loss. We are lost and undone before a Holy God. In His love, He calls out to us through His Word. We are to come to Him in repentance and believe in Him and His great sacrifice as payment for the sin that our broken state produces in our lives.
Blessing – God’s favor and protection.
The Lord wishes to bless us. He comes to us individually and offers us His blessings through His Word as we come to Him by faith. His Word is replete with blessings He has provided for those that love Him. We can know and have a personal relationship with the Lord Almighty. We become “children of God” and joint-heirs with Jesus. The Bible has incredible promises for all those that admit to their brokenness and come to the One that loves us.
Eternity- infinite or unending time.
The Bible says that we will all live forever, and we have a choice as to where we will spend eternity. The Lord does not send anyone to Hell. Our own choices determine where we will spend eternity. The Lord paid a great price so that we could be with Him always! That’s the total message of the Bible. What more could the Lord have done?
“For God so loved the world that he gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16)
We were broken beyond our ability to repair the damage. The Lord in His mercy reached down to a broken and lost world and offered not only to repair our brokenness, but He offered us a place with Him in eternity. The choice seems simple. We can choose to reach up and take the hand of the one that loves us, or we can remain broken and suffer the consequences. The Lord is gracious and longsuffering, but we are not assured of anything passed today. We must realize our brokenness and come to Him. Today is the day of salvation!
“As for me, I shall call upon God, and the Lord will save me” (Psalm 55:16).
