What A Mess VBS Overview:
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. ” Romans 8:28 (NIV)
Who Made This Mess?!
Scripture: Adam & Eve, Genesis 3
Adam and Eve aren’t just two people who lived long ago and far away. They are a representation of us, every time that we choose to rebel against God by sinning. This place is a mess because of sin. And it is a mess that we can’t clean up on our own.
Main Idea: Why is the world so messy?
Jesus Loves A Good Mess!
Scripture: Rich Young Ruler, Mark 10:17-27 & Genesis 3:21
The rich, young, ruler was a special kind of mess. He is dramatic, arrogant, self-righteous, and hungry for attention. He even lies straight into the face of Jesus, about how perfect and sinless he is. And how does Jesus respond? With love!
Main Idea: Jesus loves messy people.
Confess Your Mess
Scripture: The Sinner’s Prayer, Luke 18:9-14
“Have mercy on me God! A sinner!”
This prayer is juxtaposed to that of a self-promoting Pharisee, who claims to have it all together. God honors the prayer of the sinner, who desperately calls out his own inadequacy.
Main Idea: Let’s be honest about sin.
Address Your Mess
Scripture: The Prodigal Son, Luke 15:11-22
Jesus died for the messiest version of you. He addresses your mess with love and grace; not harsh judgement. The father throws his royal robe over our sin-stained, tattered clothes, and covers us up in his grace.
Main Idea: His grace covers our sin.
Address Their Mess
Scripture: Judging Others, Matthew 7:1-5
This messy world is full of messy people. How do we deal with the sins and hurtful behaviors of other; especially when they hurt us? We must forgive, just as Jesus forgave us. And forgiveness carries the weight of a sacrifice.
Main Idea: Forgive like Jesus.
