"God will turn your mess into a message..." I was taught this, I have believed this and I have preached this for years...
I knew nothing else! I considered every mistake I made as a message in the making...this was an error, one with no eternal benefit...but then I still didn't know
Fast forward to 2017, I stumbled on the thought again and God's light hit me, "my mess is not my message, Christ is my message, the forgiveness of sins is my message...then scriptures began to make sense to me; Paul didn't preach about how he persecuted the church, he preached Christ every where he went, Peter didn't preach about how he betrayed Jesus, he preached about Christ and the forgiveness of sins, James the brother of Jesus didn't preach about how he and his other siblings didn't quite understand what Christ was doing at first, he preached Christ...and David? He was the man that saw the blessedness of a man whose sins were forgiven...he didn't prophesy his mess (just imagine David preaching his many women saga), he prophesied the Messiah... with this great cloud of witnesses, I preach no other message but CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED...therefore now I know no man after the flesh, I don't even know me after the flesh...if you ask me about who I used to be, my reply would be "I don't know what you're talking about" old things are passed away, I am a new creature...all things have been made new...the old man died and this new man is alive unto righteousness...MY SINS HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN, NO MESS EXIST IN ME!
God WILL NOT turn my MESS into a MESSAGE, He has TAKEN AWAY the mess by the sacrifice of His Son and given me a message: CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED!
