January 19

Why do we as a church worry about hurting someone’s feelings over their choice of sin? I know we want to appeal to a broader audience, but at what cost? If people are coming to your church, they are looking for a way out. There’s no need to candy coat the truth. In their heart, they know there is a better way and are looking for what’s missing to fill that empty spot in their spirit. That’s how they got where they are; looking for a fix in the wrong place. In todays society we try to make it seem like life is all rainbows and butterflies, but that’s far from the truth. If you're seeing those types of things, you’ve probably been exposed to the latest hallucinogenic drug! The church is the right place, with the right tools to replace pain with something better or someone better! Jesus came to bind up wounds, heal the broken hearted, and set the captives free. We can tell them the truth about that!

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, Luke 4:18
