We need to become that kind of place where nobody is afraid to say, “This is what I am struggling with.” We need to become that kind of place where when someone confesses something to us, they feel like they have found a place of healing and hope, where they will be with others who have been there, and who will walk with them and bring them to Jesus who has healing and life for them, and help them grow, instead of being demoralized and judged.
We, as followers of Jesus, have been rescued from the kingdom of darkness and transferred into the Kingdom of Jesus. He purchased our freedom at a great price, his death. He did not set us free so we can simply live comfortable lives and think only about our future. He has called us to be a part of his great rescue mission to bring the love of Jesus to wherever so more people can get to know Jesus and be pulled out of the kingdom of darkness and into his Kingdom so they too will have a hope and a future.
