A New Man


Over the last several months, Lisa and I have been serving a local couple who have deeply been hurting. A local church sent them to us, and we’ve been fighting for them like crazy. The husband’s affair was ripping the family apart, but through the love of Christ, the wife held on. She loved him even when she wasn’t herself loved by him. She extended the love of her Father to her husband in amazing form and is winning the battle.

Her husband, Rob, is fighting. After a year of obsessing over the other woman, he’s realizing the depravity of his life without Christ. He’s been a slave to his master, the devil, for so long, but the chains are coming off. I heard freedom and peace in his voice for the first time ever last night. I felt like I was talking to a new man.

For all of you who believe your situation can’t be overcome, you are wrong. According to the apostle Paul and my brother-in-Christ, Rob, “We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.” Rob is overcoming. Rob is an overcomer.

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”

Ezekiel 36:26 NIV
