1 Timothy 1:12-13 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.
I believe no one was created evil in this world. God created us in His image and likeness. No less. Just like Him. The reason is He simply wants us to do great things. Just like He does. In the end, what we do will glorify Him.
Evil thing happens when we give control to the false “director”. We let our-self get carried away in negative situation, it builds bad character and evil deed in our life.
Perhaps some of us think that our life is over once we did something evil. We think we have no positive vibes left. We feel the more we put effort trying to live good and righteous, the harder it takes. If so, we will end up feeling even worse than before.
Today, I bring us good news. I want to assure us that God is more than able to restore and revive our life, if we let Him to be the “director” of our life.

I want to give us a fact about bad character and deed. Just assume that the evil things or wrongdoings we did are stealing, stubbornness, bad temper, jealousy, and deceit. Do we realize the bright side of those bad deeds?
If a thief gives his life to Jesus, I believe he will turn to a creative person. A stubborn can be a resilient. A hot temper becomes an assertive. A jealous guy turns to a attentive. A liar is transformed into a super resourceful evangelist.
If thieves, liars, grumpy people, and jealous guys get together in a church, transformed by Christ, I believe, they will be the people who brings the biggest breakthrough for the Kingdom of Heaven.
I don’t know what kind of dark side you have. What I know for sure is this: if you give your life to Christ alone, give Him a full control over it, your whole life will be turned around to something bigger that you could have ever imagine. (Author: @mistermuryadi, Translator: @dollymuryadi)
