Philippines | Leave Your Life of Sin
November 4, 2009
‘E’ is an avid listener of our youth program, Absolutely 24/7. She is a college student in the third year of her studies. Last month, she contacted us over an issue she was facing.
She shared that she had a boyfriend, and that they were having a hard time controlling their sexual urges. Earlier on, we had encouraged them to continue to pray and ask God for strength. She confessed that they were tired of trying, and that they had given in to their desires.
Our counselor shared with them from the book of John.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
‘E’ and her boyfriend were exhorted to stop committing sin, and were reminded that there was still a silver lining: God still loved them, and that He would forgive them if they repented and asked forgiveness for what they had done.
Her response was that of relief:
“We understand everything that you have told us. We will do what you have said. You have helped us a lot.”
Now, ‘E’ and her boyfriend are trying to get right with God. Our ministry team is still following up with them. Let us continue to pray for them!
Prayer and Praise
- Pray that ‘E’ and her boyfriend will find strength and wisdom in the Lord as they seek to live lives in obedience to His Word.
- Praise God for using Absolutely 24/7 to reach out to the youth of this generation.
