If you have been searching for help and answers, it is not a coincidence that you found your way to this site. There are many ways to cope with lust and addictions, but I can say with confidence, Jesus is the ONLY source of true freedom. If you want to be totally free and restored in your mind and heart, Jesus in not AN answer… He is THE answer.
Many of you have probably tried many times to give up pornography and are worn out from trying. Jesus says to you, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest… for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls (Matthew 11:28,29).”
Good news! God isn’t waiting for you to get it all right before He helps you. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).” He wants to forgive your sins and give you a fresh start if you’ll let Him. Imagine knowing today that all your sins are forgiven and God sees you as pure.
2000 years ago, Jesus came to give salvation for sinners, to heal the broken hearted, to set people free who are in spiritual captivity and to give liberty to people bound in oppression (Luke 4:18). 2000 years later, His mission hasn’t changed! If you want to be free, Jesus died, conquered sin and death and lives today so that you can be! God loves you enough to die to save you. But better than that, He LIVES for you! There is nothing you did or can do to earn this love. It is God’s free gift that Jesus paid for fully. As you get to know this love, it will change you in ways you can only imagine!
If you have not known Jesus as your savior, as the healer of your heart and as the One who will set you free, you can know Him today. You are not too far gone for Him to save you. The Bible says, “He is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him.” There was no person on earth when Jesus lived who He was unwilling to save and love if they’d come to Him – and there is no person today who He is unwilling or unable to save. There is no depth of bondage that He can’t free you from. He did it for me and He will do it for you too if you’ll put your hope in Him.
He offers salvation and eternal life to people who put their faith and future in His hands. The Bible says, this is an unbreakable promise: in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began, (Titus 1:2).
If you have become addicted to pornography, nobody needs to tell you that sin enslaves and leads to death. You know this better than most people. All God’s ways lead to life and freedom. You don’t have to work for this freedom. It is God’s free gift to those who trust in Him. You receive that gift by confessing your sins to God, turning from them, asking Him to forgive you and to give you His free gift of eternal life.
If you would like to know Jesus as your savior, use the prayer below as a model, but make the words your own:
Father God. Forgive me for the sins and bad choices I’ve made that have hurt you, others and myself. I’m sorry and I need to be saved. I believe that you love me despite my sin and even sent Jesus, Your son to die in my place for my sin. Jesus, please take the place for my sin right now and make me clean and whole. Renew my mind and place your Spirit in me. I want to turn from my life of sin now and ask You to help me live for you and what is right. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
Father, I confess that I have a problem with pornography and sexual addiction. Please forgive me and right now, start working in my heart and life to set me totally free. Please give me mercy if I should mess up and grace to overcome when temptations arise. I confess that I belong to God and not to sin. Please cleanse my body, my soul and my imagination from every former act and let even the memories of the way I was fade away. Please also use the lessons of this book to teach me how to overcome and to know You better every day. Amen.
If you asked Jesus to be your savior, God chooses to see you as clean and whole. That doesn’t mean that you will never sin again, but the sacrifice Jesus made is big enough to cover your past, present and future. And in Him, you have access to the life-changing power of God that has the ability to heal the heart and bring real freedom from any degree of bondage you may be in. God says that in Christ we are more than conquerors and can do all things through Christ strengthening us. So let us begin this journey out of this bondage together. Great things are to come.
