I don’t talk about it much in the newsletters, but I was a local church pastor for 9.5 years, starting at the tender age of 18.
The two biggest times of the year for a local church are Christmas and Easter for two reasons. First, the holidays themselves commemorate significant events in Christian history.
On a more practical level, they are the best attended weekends of the calendar year.
For me personally, it meant dressing a bit better than normal, preparing the songs further in advance, and unfortunately a couple of the churches I pastored did “Sonrise” services…which started at 6am to commemorate the early rising of Jesus.
Now Easter may just be another weekend for you, and that’s fine. But I want to make sure you don’t lose sight of WHAT we are commemorating and celebrating this weekend.
Jesus saves. God redeems. Every single believer in the Body of Christ is chock full of resurrection power. That is good freakin news!
When you are addicted, bound and enslaved to sin, it is hard to see a way out. It’s hard to imagine what your life could be like without the enslavement. It’s a hopeless, depressing place to be.
That was my life for many, many years.
And while we have a system, a program, and a process for helping men experience lasting freedom from porn addiction, the reality is that it is God Himself who does the real work.
You may be at square one in the recovery journey, you may be in the thick of it making progress but still have some ways to go, or it may be the home stretch for you…
Can I give you a piece of advice?
Relax. Stop putting pressure on yourself to make this happen. Let Jesus, the author of salvation, and His glorious resurrection power be your strength.
From my family to yours, a very Happy Easter!
