Summary: Let Jesus be the one to Heal your broken heart

Luke 4:16-21

Last week- Spirit, Soul, and Body

The word of God-

Hebrews 4:11-12

11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. 12For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow…

God’s word will divide you up---

Spirit from soul

Why? your soul has a past, Your spirit has a future

Too many people--- Think their past is bigger than their future—

That identity----keeps us from becoming what we already are

A broken heart, can keep us from realizing—God has healed us

We keep things in----Hold things in

Anger, Bitterness, Heartbreak, Rejection,

Why is there such failure in areas of:

Friendships, Marriage, Parenting

All of that baggage is still in us

My Husband drives me crazy, you went crazy when you couldn’t forgive

My wife don’t understand me- No you didn’t understand why your dad left

My husband doesn’t love me like he should—You’ve never known love-

I don’t have patience w/ my kids—neither did your parents

Those are hang- ups---preventing the healing of your hearts

Proverbs 4:23

Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.

When times get hard—it’s not wives fault, husbands fault

It’s your fault—for letting your past be bigger than your future

What comes out of your heart---IS ONLY WHAT”S IN IT

Tea bag- Illustration

Drop a teabag in some hot water, and wait for the tea to spread

Make sure glass is clear

It’s not the water’s fault that it turned brown---it’s what’s in the bag

If the tea taste bad, don’t blame water, change the tea bag

How can you heal this broken heart of yours?

1. Realize it wasn’t God

2. Forgive

3. Share the love- that you didn’t get

1. Realize it wasn’t God---Job 1: 6-20

There are statements that are truly spoken

But that doesn’t make the statement true—

I could say ____wronged me, I could say______is the meanest guy I know

While I say that with conviction… doesn’t make it true

God remove his hedge from Job,

Everything after that, Was all SATAN

God does not take things away----HE LOVES YOU

God did not give and take away- He gave Satan took it away

We react the same---When bad happens---separate from God

When more happens----Blame ourselves----“I DESERVED IT”

Why would God “allow” babies to die, tornadoes, earthquakes, serial killers, holocausts, wars, drive-by shootings, rape, hate crimes, bankruptcy, cancer, and sudden, fatal accidents?

When we see this it makes us think God is mean! BUT HEY--LIFE HAPPENS

“Most Christians” wanna talk about Jesus DYING


Most folks just see the death side of Jesus!

Yeah he died but “WHY?”

So I didn’t have to

To overcome the grave

To set me free

To send the Holy Spirit

To change the world

Changing your view of what he has done---


God weighlayed People in OT—Has he changed

No---He punished those people for their actions

He Punished Jesus for yours…. Somebody had to be punished

They paid one by one- Jesus Paid once for all

Seen this nonsense at funerals----God forbid someone get saved

2. Forgive- Matthew 18:21-35

If you want your heart to heal…must forgive

“They don’t deserve to be forgiven”…probably not


Some say, “YOU haven’t forgiven ‘til you forget.”

Don’t believe that church….some pain you’ll never forget

We have been pardoned of a great debt…return the favor

3. Share the love you didn’t get- Acts 10:37-39

We complain about—what happened to us

Turn around do the same thing to someone else

If it has hurt you so much, then let it stop with you

I’ve realized this week, part of my calling

The healing you need, may be in watching someone else be healed.

Never forget that God is on Your side, And He’s ready to heal your broken Heart
