The biggest roadblock for hurting people is simply admitting that they have a problem. No matter how much you want to help someone unless they are ready to acknowledge that they actually need help your efforts will produce lackluster results. Addictions, depression, suicidal tendencies, obesity, anger issues, and the list goes on.
For some admitting they have a problem never comes and the results are often a terribly wasted life. Then there are those who go through an intervention in hopes they will see the light and get the help they so desperately require. There are those who sink so low that something happens. A click goes off in their hearts and minds. Like someone turning on a light in a darkened basement. They come to the horrible realization that they have lost their way and are in desperate circumstances.
Here’s the good news. It’s not too late to turn your life around. There is a whole group of people who have found their way out of the darkness into the light through faith in Jesus Christ. It is the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. A bunch of former pimps, prostitutes, drug addicts, drunkards, sexually promiscuous, greedy, self-serving, despicable human beings who heard Christ’s invitation and believed. Instantly they were changed from the inside out.
Now the church is a hospital for bruised, broken, hopeless humanity. It’s not a perfect place because perfection does not exist here. They are a group of people who are now on a journey of faith, hope, healing, and wholeness. We still mess up but not like it used to be. I invite you to come join us as we walk this new road of faith together. We need all the help we can get.
