Bob’s Story (and Yours Too?)
Bob owns a small construction company. He can be seen around town in all the usual places doing small-town things. Bob’s success masks the decade-long battle with substance abuse. Bob assumed the company’s leadership after his father retired, and the crew he hired had an excellent reputation for being hard workers. Bob’s financial success never brought him true fulfillment, and his neighbors took notice and invited him to church. Bob’s curiosity and the neighbor’s invitation led him to attend. Bob received Christ soon after that and joined a mentoring group. At first, he felt like a fish out of water, but he stuck it out.
When he grew in his relationship with Christ, he began to identify some pain points from childhood that sent him into addiction. As a child, he felt abandoned and unwanted, and substances were his way of dealing with the pain. After a long battle, Bob got clean and sober. He loves to tell people about how they can be free from addiction! His faith and testimony lead people to love Jesus like Bob loves and serves them.
Bob is still devoted to his church, and now, he helps at a recovery program. He serves faithfully every week. He loves seeing people experience freedom in Christ, breaking the chains of addiction. He says, “I would do this for the rest of my life even if I never got a paycheck.”
Bob is motivated by God’s love. His fulfillment is secured.
God’s love will motivate you to love and serve others like he first loved you.
