How To Overcome Habitual Sin And Addictions?
Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or encouragement.
Addiction and habitual sin go hand in hand. God is the answer to them both. When I was addicted to alcohol and drugs, I was not only an addict but also a sinner lost in my habitual sin. I have learned firsthand that addiction and habitual sin are the same, and the remedy for both is the same, which is by accepting Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross as payment for my sins to free me! All sin, including habitual sin, can be overcome by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I have tried to pull myself up by my bootstraps by trying to think positively, but that got me nowhere. We need God’s saving grace! ~ Bill Greguska
Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
