Titus 3:3-8 speaks so clearly to where we are as women. It addresses our failures, our mess-ups, our sin, tricks, cover-ups, walls, deception and enslavements. It gets straight to the heart of the matter. It doesn’t condone our behavior, but it doesn’t condemn it. It challenges us to move. It calls us to a higher way of living, thinking, loving and trusting. It confronts our sin. If your life is a mess, ask God into it.
There is such hope for messy people in these verses. They tell us the truth about who we are, who God is, and how we are called to live--because He lives in us. We may be a mess…“But God” is REAL—He Redeems, Equips, Accepts and Loves us in our mess! He gives wisdom for living, hope for the future, healing for relationships, and deep joy as He transforms our lives.
When we miss the wonder of the gospel of grace, we resort to worldly ways of dealing with our sin. Some of us resort to penance, some go into hiding, some put on masks presenting a persona we wish were true (although we know it’s not), and some ‘make it up to God’ by working harder for Him
Our keynote speaker, Barb Mulvey has gone from being a Mess to a “Messy Messenger” and wants to share how you can too.
Join us this September as a whole lot of Messies love on you! We want to encourage you and connect you to the true Hope, Healer and Helper.
