Is there anyone today enjoying a perfect life, untroubled by their past, confident for the future, at peace with family and friends, financially blessed and totally fulfilled? Is that you? We live in an imperfect world, where for many struggle is a fact of life. There's nothing wrong with admitting we can't make it on our own. It's part of the human condition.
Through eyewitness accounts we read how Yeshua (Jesus) went out of his way to associate with the sick and needy, the financially poor and the spiritually poor. He had little time for hypocrites, but showed much love as he lifted up the downtrodden. He also spent time with the rich, mainly those for whom humility was a way of life.
Following Yeshua is all about enjoying a relationship with the one who was criticised by the religious leaders for being "a friend of sinners". Life is messy, but below are three ordinary people, who have found in Yeshua a trusted friend and a firm foundation. With great honesty they share the struggles they've gone through, and how they've found peace and freedom in Yeshua in the 21st Century.
