I wrote The Heart of Addiction for one primary purpose: to glorify God by pointing people to Christ and His Word for the answer for all types of “addictions.”
Glorifying God means honoring His Word which is THE most powerful weapon in overcoming any and all “addictions.”
Sadly, the Bible is one of the most unused resources for battling addictions. The most powerful weapon for addicts to use is God’s Word since it partners with the Holy Spirit to bring about mind renewal and real, permanent change (Rom. 12:1-2 and Eph. 4:23).
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
…to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
Don’t turn to the world’s best ideas for solutions to your problems. Turn to Christ and His love and His Word of truth.
-Mark (still can’t believe I’m a published author)
