To be broken.

Posted by appolus on October 6, 2022

To be broken and contrite we have to actually be broken. It is not an abstract truth but a living reality. God does the breaking. He fellowships with the lowly and the contrite in high and lofty places. He does indeed love us and He does indeed have a plan for each of His children, His plan is to completely dismantle our lives. To be broken is the only true acceptable sacrifice. We see an example of true brokenness in David in psalm 51. David was perhaps one of the most broken men to have ever walked the earth. And then comes Jesus.

The most anguished cry ever uttered, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” This is the true horror for any saint. David “wakes up,” at the sound of the prophets voice and discovers he is far far away from God. The joy of his salvation was gone. His heart was despoiled, and the Holy Spirit was silent in the depths of His heart. And in the midst of that pressing reality he cries out to God, in the depths of his personal darkness, his hands are raised towards the light, he cries out this great eternal truth ” against thee alone oh God have I sinned.” Broken, humbled and contrite and in the midst of that he finds total restoration. This is what God loves. This is the acceptable sacrifice.
