Sin has ravaged the house that God created.
This world sits slumped, disheveled, in pain, groaning for the restoration that can only be accomplished by the hands of the Builder. The bad news is that we are living in the midst of the restoration process. The good news is that the divine Builder will not relent until his house is made new again. Someday you will live forever in a fully restored house, but right now you are called to live with peace, joy, and productivity in a place damaged by sin. Emmanuel lives here with us, and he is at work returning his house to its former beauty.
“Paul’s writing meets us where we are and directs us to where God has called us to be. If you need to understand how Scripture sparks change in real life, read Tripp!” ~ Dave Harvey, author of When Sinners Say “I Do,” Am I Called, and Rescuing Ambition
“Paul Tripp reminds us that although we often feel helpless, we are actually filled with the same life-giving, world-changing power that resurrected Jesus from the grave. As we embrace this power we can enter the most dilapidated rooms of creation and transform them through the love of Christ.” ~ Ken Sande, President, Peacemaker Ministries
