Free from Sin, Addiction, and Bondage (Part 3) – God First, Freedom Second

Draw close to God and He will draw close to you. Wash your hands you sinner; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. -James 4:7, 8

God First, Freedom Second

When I talk to people who are in bondage and I tell them to start pursuing God, I hear things like this:

  • “I need to quit drinking, smoking, having sex, etc. before I come to God”
  • “If I walked in a church it would burn down”
  • “God could never like me with all this junk in my life”

People that say things like this seem to always stay in bondage…

The reality is that God loves you regardless of what you’ve done, what you’re doing, or what you will do. He longs for you to come to a place where enough is enough and you start to rely on Him.  He loves you right where you are! Notice the what the verse says – Draw Close to God, and He’ll draw close to You. THEN wash your hands and purify your hearts.

The first and most important step in getting free from any bondage or addiction is to have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and start drawing close to Him.
