Discovering that the old man can still slap you!

Posted by appolus on May 16, 2017

In the realms of Christianity there is a lot spoken of and written about brokenness. Brokenness is not something we simply volunteer for thus avoiding the difficult situations in life. It is not merely a box to be ticked off. Brokenness is when a situation or a series of circumstances comes along where the only decision to be made is to surrender it all to God or fall back on the flesh. The old man screams to be justified, the new man falls down on his face.

Brokenness typically happens after the old man has come roaring back into our lives and takes us completely by surprise. We thought he was dead but we forgot that he still lives in our flesh. He has been replaced by Christ but he can still make a great deal of noise. He is dead in that you now are free of him and able to overcome him. In our surrender and brokenness we discover or rediscover our great need for God, every hour and every minute of the day.
