No one sins out of duty. We sin because it offers a promise of happiness. When we go down the path of sin, we find that its promise enslaves us. To walk away from sin and its slavery, we must believe that God’s promise of happiness is greater and more lasting. Indeed, we must come to believe that God’s love is more desirable than life itself (Psalm 63:3). Only the power of God’s superior promises in the gospel can free our hearts from slavery to the shallow promises and fleeting pleasures of sin.
In this 10-session video study developed by Desiring God, you will find practical ways to sever the clinging roots of sin that ensnare us, including anxiety, pride, shame, impatience, covetousness, bitterness, despondency, and lust.
Delighting in the bounty of God’s glorious gospel promises will free us for a less sin-encumbered life, to the glory of Christ. This bible-based study aims to help guide you through the battles to the joys of victory by the power of the gospel and its superior pleasure.
This class is for all adults and starts Sunday, January 12 from 9:45 – 10:30 AM in Room 119.
