Thorns. AKA ‘Prickers’. They sting when they catch you. Done right, they make a for a cool tattoo. We usually try to avoid thorns like the plague. For good reason: Most thorns just plain hurt!
The world says our thorns are our weakness, and we’d be best to hide them. But Jesus says our thorns might just be essential to our faith. He says that our thorns (emotional, spiritual, physical, relational, addictive) may just be the conduit through which His GRACE flows.
If you’ve no thorns in your life, if everything is perfect, then this message isn’t for you, please bring your iPod to church and just relax. But if you have some thorns that just won’t go away… then Paul and Jesus have an encouraging word for you.
Got Thorns? See you this Sunday at 10!
