True conversion to Christianity and the process of recovery only begin when someone recognizes that they’re at the end of their rope, and powerless to save themselves.
People can become trapped in an addiction and suddenly realize they don’t know how to escape. Regardless of whether you are someone who struggles with an addiction or know someone who does, healing comes in community. Recovery requires us to separate our behaviors from our identities, and to be open and honest around others we can trust. In this way we can come alongside each other as we encounter struggles and point each other toward Christ.
