Contemporary English Version (CEV)
We are broken. It's due to sin, and just like Humpty Dumpty at the bottom of the wall, we can't be made right purely by concentration of human effort. It takes more than human effort to fix us -- it takes an act of God, and this is exactly what we have in Jesus Christ.
In the midst of so much else going on in life, it's so easy to forget what God did for us. Because God loves you, God took on human flesh, ascended the cross and died so that you might not have to suffer the full punishment of your sins. Because of God's love, you now have hope, rather than despair. Because of God's love for you, we have a better hope that brings us close to God.
So be grateful today. Be bold and confidant and assured that no matter what happens, God loves you, and you have a firm hope that cannot be taken from you.
