Here is something I read on Facebook.

Before 2014, I had a lot of “addictions.” My biggest issue wasn’t my promiscuity or the drugs, though; it was my heart. I was slave to my sin and dead in my trespasses; to say that I was addicted to the things that the Lord hates and warns against in His word is an understatement. By His grace, He delivered me from the wrath I deserved for my sin. In doing so, He led me out of practicing homosexuality, drug abuse, uncontrollable anger, and more. I’m not without sin today by any means, but He has grown me to be like His Son and is continuing to do so more each day. Even had I gotten sober and straightened out my life some, without Jesus, I would still not truly be “clean”. More than my bad behavior, I needed a clean heart. Only being born again can save us. Turn not just to sober living but to Jesus as Lord and be made clean from the inside out. #cleanchallenge
