COLONY Bruce Symes gave the Communion meditation on Brokeness and Restoration at Colony Christian Church Sunday.
We are all broken and fall short of the glory of God, yet He is the Lord of everyone, whether they accept Him or not, Symes said. When we quit fighting Him, He becomes accessible to us. Jesus came into the world to do Gods will, to restore our relationship with God.
When you are discouraged, Symes said, take courage in the following verses: Isaiah 41:10, Matthew 11:28-30, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Revelation 21:5.
