Faith that Flees Sin
When it comes to quitting sinful patterns, many have a sincere desire but find it too difficult. They’ve tried numerous times and numerous methods and yet still find themselves falling to the same temptations. They want to stop but trying just reminds them of their mountain of failures and drives them toward despair. Others hear the warnings and agree that quitting would be a good idea, but only give it a half-hearted attempt. They quit when other people are around but give in when no one is watching. Others simply find too much pleasure in it to quit and choose not even to try. The writer of Hebrews, however, points us to a faith that gives hope for freedom from sinful patterns.
