cracked shells


It’s like this…we all carry around this delicate casing…and even though it is easily cracked we do our best to present it as otherwise. This is one thing ‘the world’ and ‘legalistic’ Christians have in common…they love their shell. Oh the things one will subject themselves to in order to go through life appearing un-cracked, through the centuries a myriad of either rules to keep you from cracking or ways to disguise the cracks, have been embraced by society.

But what if I tell you that the cracks are NECESSARY…that you have to be poked and prodded from both inwards and outwards and exposed to heat…and you need to allow the cracks to form and you need to let the shell GO in order that that new life that has been forming inside to come out!!! This is what Jesus is all about…this is what CHRISTMAS is all about…new BIRTH!!! God cracked the shell of time and space and was able to walk around among us. This new life is nothing but pure grace…the Son of God HIMSELF…in us!!! What a gift! Will you accept it? Now start cracking!!!
