So, we all battle regret & shame.
What do we do about it? What’s the next step to take?
“This guy’s walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can’t get out.
“A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, ‘Hey you. Can you help me out?’ The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on.
“Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, ‘Father, I’m down in this hole can you help me out?’ The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on.
“Then a friend walks by, ‘Hey, Joe, it’s me can you help me out?’ And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, ‘Are you stupid? Now we’re both down here.’ The friend says, ‘Yeah, but I’ve been down here before and I know the way out.'”
The reality is that all of us who have LIFE & HOPE in Jesus Christ can make our way PAST the regret & shame that hinder so many in this world.
However, I believe that most of us don’t realize that we are needed to HELP OTHERS experience this FREEDOM in Christ.
So join us this Sunday. Bring a friend. Let’s talk about “the way out” of this hole!
