Breaking the Ties that Bind
Believers are people in process. Though regenerated with renewed minds and hearts for God, the undertow of the flesh is still with us in the mortal body. Some old habits or reflexes give way to grace immediately, but others stubbornly cling to us like mud splatter. These dishonor God, grieve the Spirit, wound our conscience, and can sideline us as effective servants of Christ. I call these “habits from Hell.” This brief series addresses some of the more common ties that need to be broken, offering perspectives and practices that by grace will bring about victory.
