But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8
I’m a witness of how Jesus can step into your heart and change some things so you can live the way God intends for you to live. In one day, He delivered me from the lust for alcohol and an adulteress lifestyle. In one day, Jesus delivered from a 30-year nicotine addiction and then healed me from COPD. And before He did all that for me, I was a walking mess! Before Jesus saved me, I was going to commit suicide in a good friend of mine’s living room. But God!
Don’t worry about trying to get things right before you ask the Lord to save you. Those drugs you like to smoke or shoot up? He’ll deliver you from the addiction. That lust you have? Come to Him and He’ll replace it with godly love for others. That problem you have with lying, cheating, stealing, gossiping, hurting others and so forth? Ask the Lord to save you. He’ll do it even if you still have these and other problems.
You don’t have to meet any standards to be saved. You don’t have to “straighten yourself out” before you come to Jesus. He specializes in broken people. He wants those problems and hangups you have. All you have to do is admit you are a sinner and want the Lord to deliver you from your sin. Then repent and ask Jesus to forgive you and come and live in your heart.
Jesus specializes in messed up situations. Don’t worry about being broke, Jesus can fix it.
