February 9 – ReGen

Read Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

On our own, we are all unworthy of God’s glory. Left to our own ways and attempts at righteousness, we will always come up short.

We need God’s mercy.

It wasn’t supposed to be this way! At the very beginning, God made us in His image, and according to His likeness (see Genesis 1: 27-28), and gave us His blessing. But when the deceiver showed up, Adam and Eve chose to believe a lie, and everything changed (see Genesis 3). Now we join a long line of fallen creatures, in need of rescue, reconciliation, truth, and healing.

On our own, we ALL are broken: not functioning properly, not complete or full, fractured, damaged, no longer in working order. However, we are still God’s creation, made in His image and likeness! He loves us, and wants to restore us! Because of His great mercy, He wants to regenerate us, to restore our relationship with Him through Jesus, and to help us recover from anything that is keeping us from experiencing the full life He has always intended for us.

“There is none righteous, no not one.”Romans 3:10b

All have sinned, yes. But God wants all to come to repentance and to experience His best (see 2 Peter 3:9, John 10:10)! Friend, no sin and no struggle is too big or too small for our God. He already knows, and He still loves you!

May I encourage you today?

Be brave enough and honest enough to identify what may have you stuck. What is holding you back from experiencing all of God’s goodness? I challenge you to look over this list and see if you can identify anything that might be affecting your ability to enjoy the full life. Then surrender it to God, and consider working through the recovery process with us, so we can all enjoy the full life God wants us to have in Him. Whatever is broken in your life, God wants to heal it, and to grant you full recovery in Jesus Christ!

Re: generation is a recovery program, rooted in Scripture, and intended to help anyone who is wanting any area of their life to be healed, restored and made new. Remember, we all fall short! But we can all experience new life and full life in Christ.
