Before Christ, I was a lost soul living for self, pleasure and comfort in the world. My marriage
was falling apart and I was addicted to drugs and alcohol and was very depressed. My wife started attending a church and was receiving biblical counselling. After she started attending church, I noticed the changes in her life and I wanted the same joy and peace that she had. As my life hit rock bottom, I eventually checked myself into a rehab and was always thinking about the changes in my wife. I had a lot of guilt about the life I was living. I believed that I had done too much evil in my life and wasn’t “good enough” to be a Christian. It wasn’t until the gospel truly grasped me and the Lord opened up my eyes to the fact that Christ came to die on the cross for me, and that no one is good enough to save themselves. God so clearly showed me that he came to save all who put their faith and trust in Christ and his work on the cross and that he forgives all and every sin. After making the decision and surrendering my life to him, God completely transformed my life and broke the chains that addictions had on my life. He restored my marriage and he continues to grow me through his word by the power of his Holy Spirit!
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
