Pat Williams took really great notes from Dr. John Avant's message, "How Jesus made Us Whole!" Paraphrasing from the most inspirational sermon are the following points:
Most of us wander back and forth with the Christ in our most important relationship of all. Sometimes, we are really close to God but other times we wander away. The Christ wants to keep us whole. The key to the wholeness that we all so want in our lives is a heart of overwhelming gratitude. Jesus gave his life for us and the little things that irritate us and give us anxiety, should not, when our hearts are with His. Jesus gave us free and abundant life.
According to the scripture, only one of the 10 lepers who Jesus healed came back to thank Him. Ann Crowe says the difference is that the one who thanked Jesus, had a heart for Him.
When we sin and that is more days than not, it separates us from God. When we are grateful for what Christ does for us, a byproduct is joy in our lives that we cannot explain. If we want Jesus back in our lives, we need to do the following:
1. Come back to the Christ now.
2. Look up to Jesus and ask for His help.
3. Understand that brokenness breeds bitterness.
4. Give our broken lives to Jesus without using our life's disappointments as an excuse.
