An addicts testimony 

Never would have made it

Marvin Sapp

Nothing like the love of God!

Romans 8:37-39

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future,nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I recall a young man talking to me about his life of drugs and how he had lost everything because of his actions. Things he said to me was profound. He said even when he turned his life around accepting Christ his family rejected him because they did not see truth the way he did. His father was absent from his life and his mother was bitter. He said in a discussion with his mother he told her he apologize for all he had put her through. Her reaction was that of a angry woman spewing words of discord no peace. This led him to understand his approval and love would only be found in the gift that only God can give a man or woman. He said, “Ms. Kim that gift is unconditional love, but along with that I needed to love myself beyond my faults to meet God. He went on to say that gift God gave me that day picked me up out of the gutter by leading Holy Ghost filled evangelist to pray for me. I could then see beyond the deception and the addiction, God truly loves me and He is a deliver who sets souls free. There is nothing that could keep the love of God from meeting me that day!”

No matter what we have experienced in our lives or through out the week disappointing and traumatically painful the love of Christ is everlasting and sustaining. Gods love reaches in to the utter most depth of the world to save His own.  His love defeated the enemy on Calvary and its wonder working power is still available to anyone in need of the savior. Offer Romans 10:9-10 to someone you know whose lost that they may experience the Christ centered love this young man shared with me. Share this text even by reading his experience with a loved one or just pass the message on!

In Jesus name Amen!
