The worst thing about being screwed up is that you get results you don't wanna get! In other words, you reap... what you sow. Paul says in Galatians 6:7-8

 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

So the more we get unscrewed the more we can 'sow to the Spirit' - which simply means following Christ and doing God's will in your life. When you do life God's way you get God's results... and His results ARE AWESOME! But when we sin we are corrupted... corruption hurts!

So really what this all comes down to is: How much do you WANT to change? God has given us His word... He's given us His Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us any time we ask!... He's given us people to help us (His body - the church) and to encourage us and challenge us and keep us accountable.

Change is available! 

So the truth of the matter is this: God doesn't want us to STAY screwed up! He wants to unscrew us day by day by renewing us day by day!

John 8:31-32 gives us the key to getting unscrewed and renewed!

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Truth! Truth sets us free from all the lies that screw us up!

So let's continually get into the word of God! Continually worship and pray and seek the Lord! Continually listen to messages that proclaim the power of God's word - and be renewed!
