It is true and real that man, no matter who he may be, no matter what kind of problems he may have, he can indeed be oriented in a way, so that his long- ing, his concern and his pain will be about what is going to happen with sin, how he will be redeemed and how he will be cleansed from the contamination of sin.
And because we have a saviour, because we have Christ who forgives us, we run to Him in repentance and we beg and ask for His forgiveness.
Then, even demonic influence is removed from us, and our soul is cleansed, healed, redeemed and the Lord reigns in it.
There will come a point in your life when you will confess with gratitude to God: “Thank you, my God. In today’s chaos, I was blessed to be a Christian!”
