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.
