TOPIC: TRUE FREEDOM
Read: Romans 6:18
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
True freedom is in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The freedom that Jesus gives is all-embracing; most importantly, it frees from sin. Jesus came to save you from your sins, so, what is that evil habit or vice that the constitution of the country you live in has given you the freedom to practise such as drugs, abortion, homosexuality et cetera?
When we were younger, we thought the best way to forget ones problems was by drinking to a stupor only to realize that the sorrow continues when you become lucid. The only person who can give lasting joy or freedom is the Lord Jesus Christ. Please accept His invitation today, confess your sins and decide not to return to them. Thereafter, take practical steps towards putting an end to that habit by replacing the object of sin.
For instance, buy more fruits and vegetables so that when the urge for drugs comes, you would feast on the fruits instead. Load your phone with gospel songs so that when you feel like watching porn, you can switch to music. Lastly, have an accountability partner that you can talk to about your struggles so that he/she can take it upon himself/herself to pray for you and follow you up on your daily activities.
List the vices you commit and two practical ways to stop each. Prayerfully actualize them.
