“Change Starts Now”

Categories: CONQUERING SIN, SALVATION
    I believe in God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost.  I didn't always, but after having two beautiful, healthy children and seeing so much beauty in the world, I decided it wasn't an accident.  I decided that it was all real.  My problem is, I'm a huge sinner.  I smoke and drink and fight with my mother sometimes.  I've had three abortions... one just recently.  I can't understand how God or Jesus can forgive me.  Is it possible?  How do I accept Jesus as they say?  I thought I had, but apparently I haven't.   I don't know how to.  I feel so lost.  How do I accept Jesus as my Savior, and what if I keep sinning?

Sincerely,
Broken

Dear Broken,

Yes, you can be forgiven.  Yes, you do need to start making changes in your life... and yes, we can help.

We recommend two things:

  1. Read our article "What Must I Do To Be Saved?" to see what the Bible teaches on salvation.  Read the verses we reference for yourself (that way you can see that we aren't just making this stuff up!).
  2. If you feel comfortable, e-mail us back, and we can get you in touch with a congregation near you that can answer your questions, support you as you seek the Lord and make changes in your life, and help you get to heaven.  Not all churches are faithful, but we know of many congregations all over the country that will show you what the Bible says and make sure that you get Bible answers for your questions.

We wish you the very best.  You are doing the right thing by reaching out, and you are being very courageous in trying to change your life.
