FYI: This episode does contain mentions and stories involving demons. If you normally listen around children or need a heads-up about that topic, we wanted to give that to you.
This is part one of two, all about addiction and life-dominating sin. I have the privilege of being joined by a guest who understands this space all too well. He has such a beautiful testimony of going from being stuck in life-dominating sin to now being a pastoral intern.
Colton Conover is an Intern Pastor at Pekin Bible Church. He worked as a pest control technician before transitioning into full-time ministry. Colton struggled with drug addiction for over a decade and was hostile toward anything related to Christ.

- People are searching for something to fulfill them. Those who are struggling with life-dominating sin are often searching for something to give them peace outside of Christ. Eventually, all these other means of trying to find satisfaction will fail.
- We can have an impact even if there isn’t a conversion. Every time you share Christ with someone, you won’t always get a conversion. However, you will have an impact, whether that is seen or unseen.
- There is hope. God can redeem anyone in any circumstance. Life-dominating sin can be overcome through the power of Christ.
