John was the example American cowboy: raised by two loving parents, ‘saved’ at 9, had a wife and three daughters, and financially/career sucessful. But a downward spiral had already begun, and it all started from loving a horse.
Are we ever too far gone? Can we run, hide, or defy so much that Jesus finally lets go? John and his story shows us this can never be true. Christ will always draw us out to draw us in; and sometimes that means drawing us out of our own depravity, into prison, and back into Himself.
