Redeeming Broken Messy People

Jesus' birth story seems to be messier than we would expect. For the King of the Universe to finally arrive here on this planet, why so messy and full of drama and underwhelming? In scripture we see that God consistently chooses the broken, messy, and underwhelming people and situations in to do his best work. In fact, he takes those very things and redeems and redefines them for his purposes. Can he do that in your life? You bet.

Scripture References: Luke 2:14, Psalms 145:18, Luke 2:10-12, Matthew 11:28, Isaiah 55:8-9, Psalms 34:18-19, Hebrews 4:14-16, James 2:25, Matthew 1:1, Romans 8:28

From Series: "Messy Christmas"

We often have lofty expectations when it comes to Christmas - perfect decorations, fun parties and celebrations, just the right gift for that friend or family member. The reality is that our Christmases are often messy - travel plans don't work out, the gift that was delivered isn't the one we ordered, family isn't getting along, kids are sick or acting crazy...or both! Something that is supposed to be beautiful and peaceful ends up being ugly and chaotic and...messy. This Christmas we want to discover or (re-discover) the amazing story of the perfect Baby that was born into our imperfect world, the perfect Savior that came to rescue us from the messes we get ourselves into. We invite you to join us as we invite Him into our mess!
