Reflections from my TV Interview

bridges, christian television network, nashville, monica schmelter, emily rose massey, testimonyI traveled to Nashville, TN Tuesday for my first TV interview sharing a little of my testimony and information about my book. I sat down with Monica Schmelter on the show ‘Bridges’ on Christian Television Network | WHTN to speak on the topic of sexual brokenness and how I found healing in Jesus.

In the interview, I shared about a time in my life after I prayed the sinner’s prayer, but failed to completely surrender my entire life to Jesus- living as if He was my Savior, but not my Lord.

I used a phrase that is found in my book to describe a season of six years of a tug-of-war with God for my heart. I said, “I lived with one foot in and one foot out of my old life and new life.”

Last night, while I was praying for an old friend of mine who has become entangled in the dangerous lifestyle of alcohol and promiscuity that I found myself in for many years, I realized that it is impossible to walk one foot in your old life and the other foot in your new life in Christ.

No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other… (Luke 16:13a)

Even though in the context of Luke 16:13, Jesus is talking about wealth, the principle is the same-

you can’t live for two different things.

You can’t walk two different paths.

You either choose the narrow road or you choose the broad path.

There are so many people professing Jesus as their God, but they serve someone or something else by ignoring the Lord’s commands and seeking after whatever they want.

They are deceived believers. I pray they wake up!

I was one of those people who said they were a born-again believer, but I lived as if God didn’t exist and followed my fleshly desires, the pride of life, and worldly activities.

The more I share my testimony, the more I realize that I am called to wake up the Body of Christ from their double living. I pray for more opportunities to share my story.

The episode of Bridges will air in the coming months, and I will let you guys know the details as soon as I do.
