Brittany Rust shares her EPIC fail with Pastor
(Part 1 of 2)
From Brittany Rust:
How do we recover from EPIC failures?
Does God forgive EPIC failures?
"I knew for the first time in my life, I was hearing
truth. I was hearing what I’d always been longing for… and
that was the gospel." -Brittany Rust
Gospel means “good
[to Brittany] - What was the good news that you heard in the
church service you attended when you were 16? [Brittany] - “That He
would see a broken, depressed, 16 yr old girl, struggling with
these horrible strongholds. That He would see that girl and still
love her and still offer grace and redemption to her.”
“I felt guilty and ashamed for even struggling with these
issues (pornography and masturbation ) because there was this
mindset that this isn’t a woman's struggle… I didn’t think there
was anyone I could talk to… I felt alone.” -Brittany
In our shame, we feel as though we are the worst - the
only one who has struggled or gone this far.
You never get over everything and are perfect. There’s always
bullies who threaten to take away our lunch money.
Early in her Christian life,
Brittany felt delivered from all her former strongholds. Brittany
began to feel UNTOUCHABLE… as though
God had done all the work He needed to do and that it would be
smooth sailing from that point.
One lie is that you can never overcome. Another lie is… “I’ve
really done pretty good here! I can’t even imagine myself failing
at all.” At that point, we begin to develop UNTOUCHABLES.
“I saw it very black and white. I do this and I don’t do
this and everything should be good, right?” -Brittany
things we do that violate God’s standards.
Untouchable means -
“Sins” we assume we would NEVER do.
LISTENERS...What are the
things that you would say… I WOULD NEVER DO
Every good and
perfect gift comes from above. (James 1:17 NIV, Bible)
