Broken Open

Here's Jude's new poem. It's always great to see her new work.

Well Mike, she does speak to the broken world Christ came to heal. I do have a question. She said that Christ is not here for those who are not in need. I came to Christ at a young age and He has daily filled my cup to overflowing . I have no needs, because He has met them even before I knew of the need. Is it really only the broke that have a place in Christ, are also, the rejoicing that have been made whole? M. McM

I think she's speaking to those who don't feel a need, who think they have it all together. Christ came as a doctor, a repairman, a savior for those who need one. If you don't need that, then you don't feel a need for him. It's our need of a savior that brought us to him, and he has filled us up ever since. The ones who miss out are those who don't feel that they have a need....they won't come to him. That would be my translation of her thoughts....great insight though. thanks.
