ADDICTION TOUCHES EVERYONE! JESUS SETS THEM FREE!

“Addiction touches everyone! Jesus sets them free!”
 

“ADDICTION TOUCHES EVERYONE WITHOUT BIAS! Addiction never discriminates. Never!!!!”

From the rich to the poor and the successful to unemployed.
From the child to the parent and the pulpit to the pew.
From the the Gas Station clerk to the police and the doctor to the janitor.
From the White man to the black man and every race walking this planet.
From the one who’s been sober for 5 days to the one who’s been clean 30 years.

“ADDICTION TOUCHES EVERYONE WITHOUT BIAS! Addiction never discriminates. Never!!!!”

Drug addiction- Addiction to alcohol- Pornography addiction- Food addiction- AND MANY MORE addictions have either been our struggle or someone we know. So in some way it has touched the life OF EVERYONE!

Addiction is SO ALL EXCLUSIVE IT often revisits many who begin to FORGET JUST HOW EVIL AND DESTRUCTIVE IT WAS when it touched them or those they love.
 

“ADDICTION TOUCHES EVERYONE WITHOUT BIAS! Addiction never discriminates. Never!!!!”

Yes. It revisits and reminds us that JUDGING AND HUMILIATING THOSE who are fighting addiction for their very lives, could very well leave the one doing so- face to face with this NON BIAS GIANT asking themselves;

“HOW DID I END UP FACING THIS KILLER ONCE AGAIN?”
 

“ADDICTION TOUCHES EVERYONE WITHOUT BIAS! Addiction never discriminates. Never!!!!”

This is why the Word warns us:

Galatians 6:1‭-‬3 NLT
“Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should GENTLY and HUMBLY help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to FALL INTO THE SAME temptation yourself. Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, YOU ARE ONLY FOOLING yourself. You are NOT that important.”

THAT’S extremely clear! BUT THERE’S HOPE for those FIGHTING ADDICTION!

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A WAY OUT FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN THEIR ADDICTION OR FOR THOSE WHO have now seen this killer come back as an unwanted guest.

GODS WORD SAYS GOD “WILL SHOW US THE WAY OUT SO WE CAN ENDURE!”

1 Corinthians 10:12‭-‬13 NLT
“If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, HE WILL SHOW YOU A WAY OUT so that YOU CAN endure.”
 
“ADDICTION TOUCHES EVERYONE WITHOUT BIAS! Addiction never discriminates. Never!!!! BUT GOD LOVES US ENOUGH TO GIVE US A WAY OUT!”
 

PLEASE lets never forget how this giant killer named addiction has touched each of us and those we love. This mindset should keep each of us FULLY aware of our pain so we aren’t inflicting more pain of those who are in pain!

God bless everyone of you in the journey. Never forget there is FREEDOM in Jesus Christ even for those who have slipped in the fight! Slip and fall- just don’t stay down.

Love you all.
