Rich Mullins struggled with pornography. One night, on tour in Amsterdam, Mullins lay in bed, waiting for his bandmate in the next bed to start snoring so he could go out and walk through the Red Light district “because sometimes it’s nice to be tempted.” But there was just one problem. His bandmate never did snore that night. And finally, after a long night of tossing and turning, he picked up a notebook and wrote this song.
Aside from porn, he was also addicted to smoking.
Rich Mullins is a very good example of a very flawed human being who was committed to Jesus and greatly used by Jesus in spite of his flaws.
So He can also use you and me, with all our flaws.
