Only in Christ can I ever truly find lasting freedom and healing! -Dave Crandall


A recap of Dave Crandall’s Message, “Self Medicate”
in 5 points or less.

  1. As humans, our belief is that pain is bad, pain must be avoided. Obstacles are roadblocks to be avoided not challenges to be conquered. So we self-medicate. We’re looking to those things in the hopes that they will ‘save us’, make us feel better, freer, happier, etc… But God has a completely different path of freedom for us.
  2. It’s not so much about the ‘what it is’ as it is about ‘how/why’ you’re using it.
  3. When you become an addict you have become a slave. Whatever that THING is, it is your master, because it has control over you.
  4. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1 NIV)
  5. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. And even though “I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything. (1 Corinthians 6:12 NLT)
