the Gospel begins to dawn

When is it that the Gospel begins to dawn in our lives?  When is it that Christ, and the way in which God has designed redemption, reaches in and takes hold of our hearts and lives? 

What if it were found in our brokenness?  What if it were found in our dependence upon God?  What if it were found, not in how we feel we measure up, but in the ways we know that we don’t?

What I’ve come to understand is that I am infinitely lost without Christ.  It is in my brokenness and in my need for Christ and in God’s provision of that which I cannot muster in and of myself (or for myself) – it is in my need of salvation and in my need for continual salvation that God makes possible through Christ – it is in the reality that I am so treasured by God and so important to God that He loves me where I am – it is then that the Gospel begins to dawn.

Glory to God!
