KEY VERSE: “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:7).
Calvin Hunt sang that epic song, I’m Clean. Before singing it with The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, he gave a powerful testimony of how Jesus Christ set him free from a four year addiction to crack cocaine. Though he went to church occasionally, he would disappear into smoking dens for days. He was bound by sin. “Crack was my god,” he said, “and I served it under bushes and abandoned buildings ” Calvin finally found freedom when he stopped thinking that he could break his addiction by his own will alone.
He surrendered his life to Christ and with the help of some Christian friends came out free in 1988. My young friend, are you enslaved by any sinful habit addiction to drugs, alcohol, tobacco, sex, or pornography? Any habit that weakens your mind, corrupts your morals and enslaves your will is one you need freedom from. Your deliverance is only in the saving power of Christ’s blood which is able to make you clean, only if you repent and believe. Will you, now?
Challenge: Your deliverance from sin is in Christ alone.
Prayer: Save me, O Lord, and I shall be saved.
Quote: Are you enslaved by any sinful habit?
