When I was first encouraged to go talk to Justin after facing difficulty in my marriage and in the battle for freedom from immorality, I thought he was a little too intense. I absorbed maybe 10% of what he shared with me that night and walked away mostly unchanged. It wasn't until I had a crisis moment in my marriage that my ears were opened to his message.
I came to realize, I wasn't being intense enough in waging war against sin. I began to take to heart and put into practice Justin's encouragements (based on Scripture and lot of his own personal experience) and started to see actual breakthrough.
Justin and his wife have continued to speak into both my wife and my life and have been irreplaceable. They've encouraged us to hope in God for relational wholeness and given us practical steps that yield results along the way.
Justin knows a lot but he cares even more. And he's on the journey himself, in the fight himself, leaning on Jesus and abiding in the Holy Spirit every step of the way.
I don't feel looked down on by him for struggling. I feel encouraged and appropriately rebuked when I'm deceived, carrying a false mindset, or acting out in sin.
And yes, the Monday night worship meetings are significant and transformative. Justin believes wholeheartedly in the power of God's presence to bring healing and spends an hour in worship and prayer, soaking in God's presence then shares a relevant and no-nonsense teaching. He also has been leading Saturday morning seminars and weekend retreats which have all been Jesus-centered, Bible-centered, and Holy Spirit empowered.
And I can't forget, he's rightly submitted to a pastor of a local church and maintains healthy relationship therein often inviting the pastor or other ministers to speak to the group.
I'm so thankful for Justin and Broken Free. I'm convinced it's something way more people need and could benefit from. Lancaster is fortunate to have this ministry and I pray God increases the fruit through Justin's work in the grace of God for His glory!
