Born Again Messy

This caught my eye today and wanted to highlight and comment.

From Steven Furtick:

“But here’s the truth many churches don’t want to accept: it’s very messy for broken people to be healed and transformed. It takes time. Birth is messy. It isn’t pretty. And guess what? Neither is new birth. Following Jesus is messier than people make it out to be. And it’s just as messy and dirty for churches trying to empower people to do it.”

I loved the analogy of a new born baby with a born again person.  Neither comes without mess and dirt.  Are we prepared to help them?
