Life in the Spirit: Wholeness – 7/10/2016

Sermon based on Romans 8:27-30

A puzzle is a metaphor for life.  Underneath it all, you have a belief that wholeness is possible.  That is the beauty of a puzzle.  You believe that there is a coherent picture behind the chaos and that there is a designer who is causing the pieces to fit together.  The struggle of putting the pieces together is going to challenge that belief, but the Spirit might actually be holding back a piece to that puzzle so that you will learn something.  What is it?  God is the One who brings wholeness out of struggle.
