The world and the Prince of this world Satan tell you that you have to clean yourself up before you come to Jesus. You have to be a better person or stop your addiction first then you can come to Jesus. These are lies told to you by Satan. He whispers in your ear, things like if you walk in that church the building would fall down. Wait until you get your life straight, then you can go if you still want to.
Jesus says come to me first and I will help you. Jesus came for the people who need Him most. And who is that person? You and me. The sinners, the ones who have scares a mile deep, the ones with addiction, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, the ones who are sexually immoral, the liers, the thieves, the murders. Everyone. The people who think they are a good person and don't need Jesus, they need Jesus more than anyone. Jesus wants you to come to Him and to His people for help. You can't fix it, you can't just deal with it. It isn't going away. I know I was there, I tried doctors, pills, counseling, and nothing in the world helped. My obsession with wanting to die just took over my life for 13 years. Then the Holy Spirit lead me to Jesus and the very moment I said the sinner's prayer and gave my life to Jesus he took that burden from me and healed me in a way that I didn't think was possible. I don't know how Jesus will help you but I know he will. I know he wants to. And I know you need Him to. Stop listening to Satan's lies, that you keep you from giving your life to Jesus.
Jesus loves you and wants to be in your life, Jesus wants to carry your load. Go to Him right now and confess your sins and ask Him to forgive you and he will. I not saying it will be easy, or that your life will be perfect because it will not be. You will still battle your demons but you will have the greatest Allie at your side who will love you and be with you through it all. And you will have eternal life where there will be no sin and no burdens only pure joy and love and peace. There is no hole deep enough that Jesus can't go down in and get you. There is no wrong that you have done that Jesus can't forgive. There is nothing you have done that Jesus can't fix. You are not beyond help unless you ignore the one who can help and that is Jesus. Jesus is the answer no matter what the question is or the problem is. He can't help you if you don't ask. Ask Him. Stop trying to fix it yourself.
Ask yourself this question, How well has fixing it myself been going? I know the answer. It hasn't worked at all. So try something new, give it to Jesus and see what He can do. And when you give it to Jesus leave it there, don't try to take it back.
Reach out to us let us help you find Jesus.
Are you ready to follow Jesus? Then say this prayer: Lord Jesus I am a sinner, please forgive me, I know you died on the cross for me and God raised you from the dead on the 3rd day, come into my life as Lord and I will do whatever you want me to do.
If you said that prayer please let us know. We are here for you to help carry your burden. When you give your life to Jesus you are adopted into the body of Christ that is the church. We are family and we support and love each other. By Jesus's standards not the world. Like any family, we stumble and fall and we make mistakes, we can be hypocrites and judging but when we stick together and we judge God by what God does and not what us sinners do then we are on the right path and we can help each other.
Galatians 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
We love you and God loves you!
